We will make every effort to assure that the people of Nebraska receive quality holistic services.  Our vision and mission.
 

Confidentiality and Surveillance
 
STD reports are strictly confidential. In Nebraska, as in most states, syphilis; gonorrhea; HIV/AIDS; and chlamydia are reported to the appropriate health department. Laboratories and health care providers provide the health department with information for controlling and preventing sexually transmitted diseases. Prompt reporting and accurate identification is important:
  • for clients that may need treatment,
  • for identifying sex partners who may be infected, and
  • for monitoring disease trends.
Intervention and Prevention
 
This program supports Disease Intervention Specialist (DIS) services at Nebraska DHHS (Central Office), Douglas County Health Department, and Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department.  DIS are Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) trained health professionals who provide:
·         confidential;
·         culturally competent disease intervention and prevention services;
·         offer STD testing and treatment referral-free or low cost; and
·         extend STD testing and treatment referral for partners, associate, and suspected companions.

Screening
 
Testing people who have no signs or symptoms of illness is important in the control of STDs. The Nebraska Infertility Prevention Program works with cooperating family planning and health care facilities throughout the state testing 30,000 persons per year for chlamydia and gonorrhea.
