The goal of the Fairfax County Health Department's STI program is to prevent the spread of infections that are transmitted sexually in our community. We do this by identifying illnesses, providing treatment, and identifying partners that might have been exposed to these infections. All of these actions, paired with health education, helps us prevent the spread of STIs.
The Health Department provides a range of STI services, including testing, medications, counseling, oversight of treatment and a wide range of educational efforts focused on prevention of the spread of STIs.
The Health Department does not provide free STI services. We either bill a client’s insurer or charge a sliding scale fee if a client is uninsured. Please contact the clinic nearest you for more information.
STI services may not be covered under your private health insurance plan. Please check with your provider.
