Health patterns and trends: Rates of STIs are highest among people from the black community

Liz Blamire

1st August 2022

The BBC report - Why I want to talk about STIs in the black community - takes an in-depth look at the trend of higher rates of STIs (sexually transmitted infections) in the UK's black community.

What journalist Cherry Wilson discovers, is that it is a complicated picture. This trend in rates of STIs is not just about sexual behaviours, but is also linked to socio-economic status, access to healthcare services, educational opportunity, employment and more.

You can listen to the episode STIs in the black community on the BBC Radio 1Xtra If You Don't Know podcast.
