The Riley County Health Department offers both testing and treatment services for sexually transmitted infections in order to prevent the spread of disease. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), sometimes called sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are passed from person-to-person through sexual contact, including vaginal, oral, and anal sex. STIs can be caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites.
Health department staff track and monitor chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The graph above shows the number (count) of both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea cases in Riley County, by year. Syphilis cases are not included to ensure all data is de-identified because there are very few in the county. Data provided to RCHD by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) Bureau of Disease Control and Prevention. Analysis conducted by RCHD.
