• The Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) works to reduce the burden of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis in Massachusetts communities, reduce the risk of HIV transmission, and reduce health disparities, through a number of strategies.  

    These strategies include community screening and treatment in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, services for STD clients and their partners, and increased community and provider knowledge of STD-related treatment, prevention, epidemiology and effective policies.  

    Critical to these efforts is the integration of the work of Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS), who provide client education and partner notification activities in conjunction with a statewide network of STD testing and care sites as well as with private providers.
