Chlamydia continues to be the most frequently reported STI in Arizona, followed by gonorrhea and syphilis.
Arizona currently has a statewide outbreak of syphilis, and medical providers are seeing the largest increase of syphilis cases in women and newborns. Pregnant women are recommended to discuss their risk with a health care provider and get tested. Getting timely testing and treatment can reduce negative health outcomes for mother and baby.

Why get tested? People who know they’re HIV and STI negative are less likely to put themselves at risk. And people who test HIV positive are more likely to get the medications they need to become virally suppressed – meaning the virus is undetectable and not affecting their overall health. We also know that virally suppressed individuals cannot pass HIV to others. people who test positive for an STI can be connected to care and treated for the STI.
