This STD Awareness Month, CDC and partners are reaching out to healthcare providers and patients alike with this very important message: Treat Me Right.
What does that mean? For providers, this involves many aspects of patient care – from fostering a trusting patient-provider relationship to ensuring that patients are correctly diagnosed and treated – and everything in between.
For patients, this means knowing what they can do to stay safe and healthy and how to directly ask their provider for the care that they need and deserve.
At a time when STDs are at a record high, it’s never been more important to protect your patients’ sexual health as a provider, or stand up for your own sexual health as a patient. Having a strong patient-provider relationship is always important, and the stronger these relationships are, the weaker STDs will become.
The Division of STD Prevention is a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We aim to help people to be safer and healthier by preventing sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and their complications.
