HEALTH STATUS - Gonorrhea
AIDS/HIV   |  Syphilis  |  Gonorrhea  |  Chlamydia

Increase in Gonorrhea Rate: The incidence of gonorrhea decreased between 2007 and 2011, with a 12 percent decrease nationally and a 3 percent decrease in Hawai'i. While Hawai'i's incidence has been consistently below the national rate, the incidence in Hawai'i started to increase in 2000, after reaching an all-time low. Recent increases are due in part to dual testing and the increase sensitivity with newer tests.

Gonorrhea by Gender and Age Group: Data on gender and age groups show that over a five-year period from 2007-2011, males aged 15 and above had constantly higher incidence rates than females. The incidence rate reached an all time high in 2010 for both males and females with the incidence rate for females being 56 cases per 100,000 population and the incidence rate for males being 81 cases per 100,000 population.

 

The highest rates are for those aged 20-24.
