NCSD's STD Clinic Initiative supports critical STD and HIV services for vulnerable Americans
September 20, 2018
In early 2018, NCSD launched Reimagining STD Clinics for the Future. The focus of this national initiative is to build the capacity of public and private STD clinics across the country and advocate for the resources needed to meet the demands of their front-line work to reduce STD infections and promote sexual health.
Components of this initiative include:
Completing a thorough assessment of public and private clinics – from location and infrastructure to billing practices and the range of services they provide
Acting as a national voice to advocate for STD clinics and the resources needed to curb the STD epidemic
Building capacity for STD Clinics and providing technical assistance for third-party billing, implementation of new diagnostic technologies, PrEP prescription and management, and more
Creating training content and other resources to help clinics implement best practices
Implementing a community of practice for STD clinics
