A Glimpse at Recent UK Sexual Health Data

Take a moment to digest this: the latest data released by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) in 2023 reveals a concerning rise in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) across England. The report shows there were 392,453 STIs reported in 2022, 24% higher than the previous year.

Key highlights from the report:

  • 50% increase in gonorrhea cases compared to 2021.
  • 24% increase in chlamydia infections compared to 2021.
  • 15% increase in syphilis cases compared to 2021.
  • 26% increase in STI diagnoses among young individuals aged 15 to 24 since 2021.

Testing rates remain lower than pre-COVID, but the number of STIs being diagnosed are exceeding the high levels reported before the pandemic

These numbers are more than only stats. They highlight the desperate need for readily available and effective STD testing services. At Medical Travel Market, we advocate for urgent government funding in sexual health screening and treatment services across the UK.
