Short Description
During 2015, African Americans accounted for approximately 84% of all reported gonorrhea cases in Illinois. The Southern Illinois region historically lacks easily accessible medical care that provides comprehensive sexual health services. The IDPH STD Program is awarding funds to a local health department in southern Illinois that provides safety net services to this population with a focus on the uninsured/ underinsured population. The agency must serve the poorest communities with the highest STD morbidity and case rates targeting African American and the uninsured/ underinsured population. The grantee must conduct STD prevention counseling and partner services by disease intervention specialists for at least 85% of all individuals diagnosed with gonorrhea within or residing within the agency’s jurisdiction; and, offer comprehensive STD preventative services and education to health care providers and the community.
