Knowing your STD status is a critical step to stopping STD transmission. If you know you are infected you can take steps to protect yourself and your partners. The purpose of this program is to prevent and reduce the transmission or spread of STDs. The services provided include, testing, Screening, Treatment, Counseling and Education.
Many STDs can be easily diagnosed and treated. If either you or your partner is infected, both of you need to receive treatment at the same time to avoid getting re-infected.
