Patient Delivered Partner Therapy
Essential Access Health works to reduce the spread of STDs and reinfection by providing free chlamydia and gonorrhea medication to eligible clinic sites and local health jurisdictions (LHJs) serving uninsured and/or underinsured populations in the state of California through the Chlamydia/Gonorrhea (CT/GC) Patient-Delivered Partner Therapy (PDPT) Distribution Program.
Participating clinic sites dispense the free medication to patients that test positive for CT/GC to give to their sex partners for treatment. LHJs may also provide the free medication to CT/GC-positive patients and their sex partners through other methods of expedited partner treatment (EPT), such as field-delivered treatment (FDT).
