PDPT Distribution Program

Chlamydia / Gonorrhea PDPT Distribution Program

Essential Access Health's Chlamydia/Gonorrhea (CT/GC) Patient-Delivered Partner Therapy (PDPT) Distribution Program is designed to ensure that exposed sex partners of patients diagnosed with a CT/GC infection receive timely treatment to prevent repeat infection.

PDPT is not intended as a first-line partner management strategy. It is an evidence-based alternative for treating sex partners who are unable or unlikely to visit a health center. This program is intended for uninsured or underinsured sex partners of patients diagnosed with a CT/GC infection.

Through the CT/GC PDPT Distribution Program, California clinic sites and local health jurisdictions (LHJs) are supplied with free medication to give, when appropriate, to their patients diagnosed with chlamydia and/or gonorrhea. Patients deliver the medication to their sex partners without the partners needing to be examined or evaluated by a clinician prior to treatment. Additionally, LHJs implementing Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT) programs outside of a clinical setting may provide the free medication to patients and/or their sex partners through field-delivered treatment (FDT).

To be eligible to participate in the CT/GC PDPT Distribution Program, each clinic site and/or LHJ is required to meet all of the eligibility criteria. Learn more about eligibility criteria.
