Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)

The STD clinic provides services for clients from many surrounding counties as well as Pennsylvania. Individuals are seen and examined by a physician. Individuals can be tested and treated in the clinic for gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, genital warts, trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis (BV). The hours of operation for the walk-in clinic are 12 noon until 2:00 p.m. for registration , every Tuesday and Friday. The cost is $25.00.

Public health nursing staff assists in collection of specimens, adminsters medications as ordered by the physicians, conducts epidemiological patient interviews to obtain information regarding diseases and their spread and ensures they obtain care and remain under medical treatment. The staff also provides information and educational presentations of the totality of sexually transmitted diseases to at-risk teen groups at community centers, Youngstown State University's health classes and teachers, at health fairs and other community groups. The supervisor of the clinic has appeared on local radio and television programs alone and as a panel member to address community concerns regarding sexually transmitted diseases. As in may areas, the STD rates in Mahoning County are most alarming. Chlamydia, alone, is the greastest growing STD in the country. Syphilis is on the rise, too. For example, in 2003 Jefferson County, one of the five (5) counties we are required to service, had zero (0) syphillis in 2004, one year later, that number rose to 18. This year Mahoning and Trumbull County have experienced dramatic increase in the numbers of syphillis. Yet, the amoung of state dollars stays the same.
