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.
The Van Wert County Health Department is pleased to be taking part in the
Region 5 Infertility Prevention Project by offering a weekly STD clinic to the public.
The STD clinic at the Van Wert
County Health Department has been suspended for November and
December. There are clinics available in Allen County, Ohio
and Allen County, Indiana or visit the Ohio Department of Health
website to find a clinic.
