Nebraska STD Prevention and Partner Services Program
Vision and Mission
We envision an empowering, capable, and malleable coordination of prevention and care that reduces the incidence, economic burden and long-term consequences of STDs/HIV and related epidemics. This system will recognize the association between STDs/HIV and larger social issues and the consequential need for a united response.
As part of this system, our programmatic structure is designed to enable effective and open communication among and between all of Public Health’s working parts. We identify people as complete beings who enjoy a multitude of abilities and needs, with contributions to make, and desires for a fully creative and nurturing life. In working together we supply quality tools and services that adapt proactively to current health care trends.
Our mission is to prevent, treat, and/or control the spread of STD/HIV in order to protect the health of the residents of Nebraska. In line with this mission, we secure, distribute, and manage fiscal and in-kind resources so that local health professionals and organizations may:
Provide STD/HIV disease prevention education and information
Gather, interpret, and distribute morbidity data relating to drive/support program resource allocation;
Make available technical support and guidance to those who oversee, plan for, or provide STD/HIV services;
Provide medication and screening/testing provisions to prevent, manage, and treat communicable diseases; and
Facilitate collaboration between researchers, practitioners and funders to improve provider practice.
In pursuit of this mission, we will make every effort to assure that the people of Nebraska receive quality holistic services.
