City of Milwaukee Health Department

MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Health Department is noting an increase in STIs among people in the City of Milwaukee between the ages of 15 and 24.

Milwaukee Public Schools officials were notified of this information at the end of 2017 — and issued the following statement:

“In December, the Milwaukee Health Department informed Milwaukee Public Schools that the entire city is experiencing an increase Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) in 15-24-year-olds.

Because schools have a significant number of students in the 15-18 age group, we are working with the Milwaukee Health Department, in a collaborative and preventive effort, to share information with young people in middle schools and high schools to keep them healthy and to protect their health.”
