In 1993 Congress appropriated finds to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to begin a national Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) related Infertility Prevention Program. The program was designed to improve screening, surveillance and treatment of STD’s in the United States. By 1996 the CDC had contracted with all the states for demonstration level health funding to provide tests and treatment for Chlamydia in selected family planning and sexually transmitted disease clinics.
