It’s been reported many times by the CDC and other agencies that STI (sexually transmitted infection) rates have been increasing in recent years. New data highlights that the biggest increase in the US is in older people. Specifically, those aged over 65. 

Compiled by Fairhealth, which tracks billions of health insurance claims across the US, and covering the period between 2020-2023, it found the STI rates jumped by 24 percent in those aged over 65 in this period. The data specifically covers commercially insured patients only.

There was also a 16 percent increase in STI rates for those aged 55-64. The only decrease was seen in those aged under 24. 

How about we take this to the next level?
