Alarming Increase in STDs Leads to a Concerned Report by RIDE

The Rhode Island Department of Health has released a concerned report suggesting that the rates of sexually transmitted diseases across the United States are once again on the rise despite their best efforts showing the risks of having unsafe sex and the presence of gonorrhea, HIV and syphilis.

The Director Designee at HEALTH, Nicole Alexander-Scott commented on the findings, saying that the findings illustrate the importance of a great deal of further improvement while STI prevalence has been brought down to considerably over the years all around the States.

These data send a clear signal that despite the progress we have made in reducing STDs and HIV over the years, there is more work to do,” wrote Alexander-Scott.

We are fortunate in Rhode Island to have great partnerships among state agencies, community-based organizations, and healthcare providers to continue to educate, test, and treat for sexually transmitted diseases. This trend reminds us that we cannot become complacent.”

Experts suggest while theorizing the cause of uptick in new diagnoses that wider screening programs and better public awareness of STIs in general is being the cause of more members of the public coming forward for testing than ever before, implying progress rather than a step in the wrong track. However, arguments otherwise state that the risky behavior among the young is causing a dangerous increase in the speed of transmission of STI, one of which is making use of social media for meeting strangers for having unsafe sex.

RIDE (Rhode Island Department of Education) repeated its intention of increasing efforts for bringing proactive and accessible sex and STD education to students in high school, for bringing the rising numbers under control.

These new data underscore the importance of encouraging young people to begin talking to a doctor, nurse, or health educator about sexual health before becoming sexually active and especially after becomingsexually active,” commented RIDE HIV/AIDS Sexuality Specialist, Rosemary Reilly-Chammat.

It’s never too early to learn about making HIV and STD testing part of routine healthcare. Doctors and nurses are trained to discuss sensitive topics like sex, and conversations with them are confidential. Health educators at schools or community health centers are great resources too.”
