STD Control and Prevention Unit
The Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Control & Prevention Unit aims to reduce the number of new sexually transmitted disease (STD) occurrences in Alameda County each year through disease surveillance, case investigation, outreach and sexual health education, condom/safer-sex supply distribution, and capacity-building service provision.
The Unit works to normalize sexual health by increasing individual, community, and health care provider awareness—including the risk for and impact of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The STD Control & Prevention Unit conducts high-impact prevention work by focusing on populations most impacted by STDs: youth (persons ages 14-24), women, communities of color, incarcerated populations, and men who have sex with men (MSM).
