STD Prevention Programs
Essential Access Health works in close partnership with the California STD Control Branch, Los Angeles County Division of HIV/STD Programs, county health departments, and providers to implement best practices in STD prevention and case management statewide. Through innovative program design and project management, Essential Access Health provides support to a variety of stakeholders and community partners sharing a common goal of reducing the spread of STDs throughout California. The primary focus of Essential Access Health's STD Programs is the prevention of chlamydia, gonorrhea, HPV and HIV.
Essential Access Health enhances provider capacity to offer quality STD care through training, site-visits and resource sharing. These activities help California providers follow current clinical guidelines and meet federal data collection requirements.
Essential Access Health's Patient Delivered Partner Therapy (PDPT) Program provides 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. Learn more >>
