What are the STI test options in Yuma,AZ?
In 2016, the HIV prevalence rate in Yuma County was 154.2 per 100K people, well under Arizona’s rate of 273.1. But don’t get smug, Yuma. The rates are rising there as in the rest of the US. Health experts blame the fact that sex education is not mandated in Arizona, so young people engaging in sexual activity do not know how to protect themselves.
Many don’t realize it’s possible to get an STI from oral sex, since they don’t consider it “real” sex. As a result, many of those with STDs are people aged 24 and under.
In 2016, Yuma County had a chlamydia rate of 529.2 per 100K people. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 118 and 1.5. Health officials urge all sexually active people to be tested regularly, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.
Yuma has very few clinics, including free STD testing at the county level if you can prove that you cannot pay. The Yuma County Public Health Department on 28th St provides STI testing for Yuma County residents only.
