HIV & Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Confidentiality and Surveillance

STD reports are strictly confidential. In Kansas, as in most states, syphilis; gonorrhea; HIV/AIDS; and chlamydia are reported to the appropriate health department. Laboratories and health care providers provide the health department with information for controlling and preventing sexually transmitted diseases.

 

Prompt reporting and accurate identification is important:

  • For clients that may need treatment,

  • For identifying sex partners who may be infected, and

  • For monitoring disease trends.

You must call to schedule an appointment

for any STD or HIV testing.
