The STD/HIV Program strives to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV infection. The program also links people to services for disease prevention and control, including health care services for HIV.

Affordable testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV infection is available from any county health departments\, and through partnerships with other clinics, correctional facilities, academic institutions, and community-based organizations.

Treatment for HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases is also provided at all health department clinics, and treatment consultation is provided online through our Crossroads Clinic in Jackson.

HIV/AIDS in Mississippi

In Mississippi, the burden of HIV is disproportionately high for men who have sex with men (MSM). Among men whose risk factors for HIV are known, 85 percent of men reported having male-to-male sexual contact. In 2017, the burden of new HIV cases was highest among black males aged 20-24, while young adults aged 20-29 as a whole represented 43 percent of newly diagnosed cases. Testing and treatment is essential for these special groups. More HIV statistics
