"We know that some of it could be attributed to more access to care and more testing", Hertin said. "Young people also may have concerns about confidentiality or may be embarrassed to seek STD services or provide specimens for testing".

Jeffrey Klausner, a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles who ran San Francisco's STI program for over a decade, said, "A lot of the funding for day-to-day public health work isn't there".

"We, like the rest of the nation, are working hard to kind of get those people treated and get those partners taken care of", Hertin said. The Tang Center offers several services for students, such as STI screenings, preventative education and information, STI and HIV testings, HPV and Hepatitis B vaccines, as well as low-priced contraceptives.
