In 2021, there were 39,023 reported cases of STIs/HIV among youth ages 13-24 in Colorado. In fact, Colorado has the highest rate of syphilis cases in the US!

As explained by experts, part of the reason why these STIs cases are increasing is because many people, youth particularly, were not aware of their status and thus could not access treatment and share their status with their partner(s) to limit transmission.
