Are you glad that you aren't "in the scene" or is this just your life in Boise?
For the entire month of June, Central District Health is going to be offering free STI Testing.
In a recent statement from Central District Health, they shared some alarming statistics:
In 2020, 3,115 STI infections were reported within CDH’s jurisdiction, with preliminary data showing 3,018 STI's in 2021. While chlamydia and gonorrhea infections are seen most often in 15-29 year-olds, early syphilis and HIV infections affect a wider age range in Idaho. So far in 2022, our area is seeing a rapid rise in syphilis cases, especially among women. Early testing and treatment can help curb the spread of syphilis.
The rapid rise in syphilis cases is certainly scary and Central District Health here in the Treasure Valley knows that the syphilis must be stopped.
