Do you have a source for Richmond being "top" in STD's? Just interested. Also good idea for creating this page. --MaxPower 13:13, 2005 Apr 25 (UTC)

RVA was top in Chlamydia and Gonorrhea according to this Henry J. Kaiser Foundation article:see Table VIII on p9
"HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have had a disparate impact across the country, with some regions being harder hit than others. The southern region of the U.S., which includes 16 states and the District of Columbia, has been disproportionately affected by the HIV/AIDS and STD epidemics." ( numbers in new cases per 100,000)
