STD Program

Florida Department of Health - Hillsborough County

The mission of the STD Program is to reduce the number of new STD infections and prevent disease-related complications through the promotion of sexual health education, early disease identification, and timely treatment.  We accomplish this through a dedicated cadre of healthcare professionals providing comprehensive care and education in the clinic, integrated with the efforts of our Surveillance Unit and early disease identification carried out by the Disease Intervention Specialists in the field.  Additionally, to increase testing capacity within our community so everyone can “know their status,” the program has funding initiatives with Tampa-Hillsborough Action Plan/Restore, the Juvenile Assessment Center, and the Ybor Youth Clinic/YES programs whereby they are able to offer free STD testing.
