STD Cases In Florida, On The Rise, What Does This Mean?
A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that there are three sexually transmitted diseases which are fond to be on the rise. Just last month, Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance have found that Cases of chlamydia nationwide increased by more than 5,000 between 2014 and 2015, while cases of gonorrhea have been found to increase by 3,000, and cases of syphilis increased by 1,000.
What The STD Survey Shows
In one of their statements reported by Daily Commercial, vice president of education at Planned Parenthood South, East and North Florida, Cory Neering, had explained the importance of the role of the community in the fight against certain diseases such as STD. Neering has claimed that communities can help counter the increase.
According to Gainesville, the Florida Department of Health has found that there are 20 million new STD cases nationally each year, half of which affect 15- to 24-year-olds, which are also perceived to be most prevalent in this age group. Moreover, it was found that state statutes have implemented the need for public schools to teach the benefits of sexual abstinence, although they do not limit schools from teaching more comprehensive lessons.
However, due to the fact that the society prohibits the said age group talking about about sexual questions, relations and infections, Neering claims that individuals often feel uncomfortable inquiring about sexual health and safety.
On the other hand, experts have explained that despite these health scare, the good news is that sexually transmitted diseases and infections are preventable, through abstinence, testing and honest communication so as to prevent this case from getting worse. Additionally, Neering said that as for adolescents who might not be aware of where to go for help and advice, access to health care and treatment can be so difficult to achieve.
Ultimately, with STD being notorious as a contagious disease, health experts have highly emphasized the need for the community's effort to be felt since this is a preventable concern. However, we still need to have a better access and we need to be able to talk openly about this issue.
