Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are pretty common, and Alaska has some of the highest rates of transmission in the nation.
However, safer-sex practices, like regular STI testing, can help stop the spread and inform lifestyle decisions.
Everyone ages 13 years and older should get tested for HIV at least once to confidently know their status. Once tested, individuals can make informed lifestyle choices to reduce the risk of transmission.
