Description:

In October 2006, AID Atlanta, Inc., one of the Southeastís largest AIDS services organizations, in partnership with the I.D Consortium led by Dr. Dennis Melton, began providing STD screening and treatment services in conjunction with its wide range of HIV prevention and care services. Recognizing the connection between HIV and STD prevention and care, AID Atlanta launched a Menís STD clinic which targets men in the Metro Atlanta area, and provides HIV, hepatitis C, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea screenings, and treatment for syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia. Referrals for treatment and social/emotional support services are also offered by prevention specialists to those who test positive for hepatitis C or HIV. Beginning in April 2007, Hepatitis A and B vaccinations will also be available through the Menís Clinic.

Community outreach activities and events are also a component of AID Atlantaís STD program, which includes participation in hepatitis and other STD prevention campaigns. During the summer of 2006, AID Atlanta partnered with HepTeam Atlanta (funded by GlaxoSmithKline) to encourage hepatitis vaccinations, screening and treatment (see www.hepteamatlanta.com). In 2007, AID Atlanta served as a lead CBO for Roche Pharmaceuticalís faith-based hepatitis C screening initiative. AID Atlanta also conducts STD screenings and vaccinations at various community venues including bars, social clubs, churches, and other locations.

For more information about hepatitis and other STD screening, treatment or referral services at AID Atlanta, call the Georgia AIDS and STD Info Line at 1-800-551-2728 Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 7:00pm, or visit the AID Atlanta website at www.aidatlanta.org
