Belgians who got tested for STDs during the year 2018, by age

In Belgium, it appears that screening for sexually transmitted diseases (STD) in 2018 was most frequent in younger age groups. For instance, whilst over 11 percent of Belgians aged 15 to 34 got tested for STDs in 2018, under nine percent of Belgians aged 35 to 44 got tested. Furthermore, the share of Belgians aged over 45 who got tested for STD in 2018 was even lower. Regardless of age, screening for STDs was rather rare in Belgium in 2018.
