The Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Prevention and Control Program works to reduce the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases. By providing screening, testing, diagnosis and treatment for infected individuals, the STD program is fighting the war against sexually transmitted diseases one person at a time. Identifying and providing prophylactic treatment and counseling for sexual partners of confirmed cases is another task of the STD program. These roles coupled with increasing the level of public awareness to sexually transmitted diseases describe the role of the STD program within the Florida Department of Health in Duval County. The program's intervention helps to protect infected individuals, their partners and unborn children from the serious complications that may result from untreated STDs.

In addition to our prevention services, partner services are offered to individuals who are infected with STDs and their partners or other persons who are at increased risk for infection. Our goal is to prevent transmission of these diseases and to reduce suffering from their complications. We work identify and locate sexual contacts of infected persons and refer them for medical examination and treatment as needed.
