The reported number of people with HIV/AIDS in Miami-Dade County in 2017 was 26,632. From this number, 74.4% were males, while 25.6% were females. The Hammocks, a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, had a significant role to play in the accumulation of these figures.
Moreover, the number of Chlamydia cases reported in Miami-Dade County in 2017 was 12,271 at a rate of 445.4 per 100,000 residents. The rates of Syphilis and Gonorrhea in the county stood at 17.5 and 128.5 per 100,000 cases respectively.
One major task of the STD control program that was developed by the Florida Department of health is to provide public awareness on STD infection as well as identifying and delivering prophylactic treatment to infected patients in order to reduce further STDs spreading.
There are not so many STD testing clinics in The Hammocks. However, there are a few that offer STD testing and treatment services.
One of the clinics is Planned Parenthood of South, East, and North Florida located on 117th Avenue Unit 207-B, Miami that offers testing and treatment services for Bacteria Vaginosis, Chlamydia, Genital Warts, Herpes, and Trichomoniasis.
There are many other testing services within the County such as AHF Wellness Centre- Biscayne located on Midtown, Edgewater, FastCare- Miami Beach, and Florida Health Miami-Dade County located in Flagler Street, Miami.
You might be lucky to get a free STD testing service from one of the clinics. However, you’ll have to pay for doctor consultation.
