According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in five people in the United States has a sexually transmitted infection; in 2018, that totaled 68 million existing infections. Of the 26 million new infections in 2018, 46 percent were among adolescents and young adults ages 15-24. The CDC estimates that STDs cost approximately $16 billion in health costs in the United States. Preliminary data indicates that reported STDs decreased in 2020 when clinics and health care offices closed; however, cases surged once screening for STDs and HIV resumed. In Nevada, the state continues to have high rates of primary and congenital syphilis.
Ongoing services available at the All Saints clinic include testing for HIV and STDs, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV infection, telehealth visits with a Health District provider, sexual health education and condoms.
