The Sexually Transmitted Disease Program's mission is to promote healthy sexual behavior and reduce the impact of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) in Riverside County. Trends in existing and emerging STDs are monitored and new knowledge about STDs, risk behaviors, treatment and prevention is gathered on an on-going basis.
The program also promotes behavior that prevents the spread of STDs, while diagnosis, treatment, counseling, partner notification and referrals are provided to those suffering from STDs. For the health care community, the program offers technical and clinical expertise.
Finally, we assure accessible health services to anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to a STD. Fees are based on a sliding scale.
