Turning the Page on HIV: New CDC Initiative Fuels Progress in STD Clinics

Sep 02, 2020 | Julia Zigman (she/her)

A new fact sheet highlights progress from a recent CDC initiative, “Scaling up HIV Prevention Services in Specialty STD Clinics,“ that emphasizes improving HIV-related sexually transmitted disease (STD) services at three jumpstart sites. Research indicates that STD clinics diagnose more new HIV cases than any other healthcare setting, so they are uniquely positioned to help people at high risk prevent HIV or people with HIV stay healthy. This new effort harnesses unique strengths of STD specialty clinics such as direct community interaction and outreach to deliver CDC-recommended, cost-effective, and critical HIV prevention strategies to the populations who need them the most.

To learn more, read about activities prioritized at each of the jumpstart sites to improve the delivery of HIV prevention services.
