Disease Intervention / Report an STD

 

At Dallas County Health and Human Services, disease intervention services include one-on-one education and counseling, confidential notifications, prevention counseling and public educational presentations.

Once a client has been diagnosed with an STD, DCHHS’ Disease Intervention staff educates and interviews clients about their exposure. The staff also provides confidential partner notifications and referrals to DCHHS services.

Counseling concerning transmission and prevention of STDs is provided to reduce the likelihood of clients acquiring future STD infections.

DI staff is available upon e-mail request to help educate the public with presentations that include information regarding risk reduction techniques, available community STD services, printed materials on the most common STDs and how to access services. Send your request to Felicia Barnett at fbarnett@dallascounty.org.

Positive results of the following STDs must be reported to DCHHS by law: AIDS, HIV, Chancroid, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and LGV (Lymphogranuloma venereum).

Physicians can fill out the Department of State Health Services Confidential Report and include a copy of the positive lab results.
