Trichomoniasis

Health disparities persist in the epidemiology of T. vaginalis infection in the United States: 13% of black women are affected compared with 1.8% of non-Hispanic white women (639). T. vaginalis infection affects >11% of women aged ≥40 years (640), and particularly high prevalence has been detected among STD clinic patients (641) (26% of symptomatic women and 6.5% asymptomatic women tested) and incarcerated persons (9%–32% of incarcerated women [135,136,640,642,643] and 2%–9% of incarcerated men) (136,137,644,645).
