What are the STI test options in Topeka,KS?
Topeka and the rest of the state have now reached STD levels that include 417.6 cases of chlamydia and 115.2 cases of gonorrhea per 100,000 residents. The state currently ranks 37th for most diseased across the country.
Syphilis, a disease that was almost extinct two decades ago, continues on an upward trend in recent years. Last year there were 141 cases of HIV, 15 cases of Hepatitis C, and 5 cases of Hepatitis A – a decline in reported numbers from the previous year.
In response, clinics like Positive Connections host engagement efforts to increase education and understanding of STD risks and preventative practices with the hope of seeing numbers decline. During certain times – including World AIDS Day on December 1st, National HIV Testing Day on June 27th, and STD Awareness Month in April – various clinics and organizations host awareness efforts that include programs, free STD testing, and educational activities.
