What It Is

The primary goal of the Kentucky Sexually Transmitted Disease Prevention and Control Program is to prevent the spread and complications of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Diseases and Conditions:


Where to get help

Local Health Departments offer testing for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis, and provide treatment for individuals diagnosed with, exposed to, or suspected of having these diseases. Patients with other sexually transmitted infections will receive counseling about the infection and will be referred to a healthcare provider, who can test for and treat these diseases.

Services received at local health departments are confidential. A service fee may be charged; however, patients will not be denied testing or treatment if they are unable to pay.
