STD Prevention

Working to Control the Spread of Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Oregon

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are passed from person to person through vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Many people with an STD have no signs or symptoms of the infection. The only way to know if you have an STD is to get tested. Some STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, can be cured. Other STDs have no cure but can be managed with treatment. Untreated STDs can cause serious health complications, and some can be passed to a baby during pregnancy. The STD Program provides support for testing and treatment of individuals and their partners.

About the STD Program

The STD Program works with local health departments and community medical providers to:

  1. Identify and treat STDs
  2. Identify, evaluate and treat newly infected contacts to infectious individuals with STDs
  3. Screen people for STDs based on disease prevalence in the population and individual risk factors.

The STD Program provides technical assistance, clinical consultations, subsidized lab testing programs, STD medications and analysis of public health surveillance data to assist with accomplishing these goals.
