The municipal government of Puerto Vallarta announced that Sunday, February 11, it will carry out a day of free testing for different Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) such as HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis C. They will be applied from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm, at Francisca Rodriguez Street #168, in the Romantic Zone.

Testing for STDs helps to get the treatment you need and prevent the spread of the disease.

STDs are caused by viruses, bacteria or parasites, and affect any person regardless of sex, sexual orientation, social class or age.

The Government of the State of Jalisco specifies that the most frequent STDs in the state are:

  • Gonorrhea
  • Human papilloma virus
  • Syphilis
  • Herpes simplex
  • Chlamydia

According to World Health Organization (WHO) data, more than one million people contract a sexually transmitted disease daily, and most cases are asymptomatic, hence the importance of regular screening.
