The Sexually Transmitted Disease program at ACHD works to reduce HIV, syphilis and other sexually transmitted infection by promoting health and enabling individuals and communities to increase control over conditions affecting their health.
Our program is mandated by Pennsylvania law and serves as the focal point for control of STDs in Allegheny County. The services provided are convenient, confidential and free of charge. Every effort is made to minimize barriers encountered by patients and to maximize access to care. Policies and procedures are developed in accordance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and ACHD.
