L.A. County Campaign To Target Rising STI Rates
On Monday, Los Angeles County officials rolled out a new education and testing campaign aimed at addressing the rising rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea among young black women in South Los Angeles. The campaign was launched in collaboration with the region's church leaders. As part of the campaign, officials will increase access to no-cost home testing kits and information about sexually transmitted infections through touch-screen computer kiosks.
