STI Program

The Iowa Department of Health and Human Services Sexually Transmitted Infection Program works to mitigate the effects of sexually transmitted infections among Iowans. In a rural state like Iowa, the STI Program must partner with other groups, agencies, and organizations for the delivery of information and services. The STI Program has established 58 provider sites for gonorrhea and chlamydia testing and treatment. The combination of local health departments and a network of local medical providers are the system that controls these diseases.

In the State of Iowa, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV, and AIDS are reportable to the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services. By Iowa Code, both the clinician who ordered the test and the laboratory that processed the specimen are to report names and other patient demographics to Iowa HHS. This information is protected by law and cannot be released to anyone other than individuals (disease intervention specialists and county public health communicable disease investigators) who perform partner notification and partner referral. In Iowa, by law, a minor can be tested and treated for a sexually transmitted disease without parental consent.

The reporting form for providers or clinics to report chlamydia, gonorrhea, or syphilis diagnoses can be found below. There are standard and fillable PDF versions.
