Description:
The Mission of BESTD Clinic is to provide quality professional diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases as well as HIV/AIDS prevention counseling and testing, in a manner that is sensitive to the sexual orientation and gender identity of our clients. BESTD Clinic provides its services at no cost.

As part of our STD screening, HIV counseling and testing and outreach programs, clients determined to be at risk for hepatitis A, B, or C are identified. Those at risk for hepatitis B are urged to be screened. Clients then receive hepatitis A and B vaccinations, if eligible. For hepatitis C screening and follow-up care, we refer at-risk clients to sites administered and funded by the state/county. BESTD Clinic has been serving southeastern Wisconsin since 1974. It is staffed completely by volunteers, having no paid staff of any kind. All services and programs are offered without charge or fee, although donations are accepted. (Our average donation is slightly over $1 per client).
