Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Control Program

About Us

The STD Control Program is responsible for monitoring, controlling, and preventing the sexually transmitted diseases (genital chlamydia infection, syphilis, gonorrhea, and genital herpes) through education of those at risk; detection of asymptomatically infected individuals and of persons who are symptomatic but unlikely to seek diagnostic and treatment services; effective diagnosis and treatment of those who are infected; evaluation, treatment, and counseling of sex partners of persons who have a sexually transmitted disease.

The STDCP collaborates with many partners to achieve its efforts at STD prevention, intervention, and control. Such collaborations address disparities related to the social determinants of health and pave the way toward fully integrated services, especially in communities disproportionately affected.
