What is the STI Clinic?

Those wishing to receive testing for STI’s including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HIV, and Hepatitis A/B/C may utilize this program in lieu of going to their PCM. Our program tests, treats, and educates members in accordance with current CDC guidelines. Currently, this program is only available to Active Duty service members.  

What is PrEP?

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) refers to medication taken people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. A combination of two HIV medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine), sold under the name Truvada® (pronounced tru vá duh), is approved for daily use as PrEP to help prevent an HIV-negative person from getting HIV from a sexual or injection-drug-using partner who’s positive. Studies have shown that PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV if it is used as prescribed. PrEP is much less effective when it is not taken consistently.

What is PEP?

Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) refers to taking antiretroviral medicines after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.
GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM immediately or within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV to start PEP regiment.  If you are prescribed PEP, you will need to take it once or twice daily for 28 days. PEP is effective in preventing HIV when administered correctly, but not 100%. If directed, follow up with PCM or your prescribed provider.   

What is Latent Tuberculosis?

Persons with latent TB infection have been exposed to the Mycobacterium Tuberculosis at some point in their life. Persons do not feel sick and do not have any symptoms. They are infected with M. tuberculosis, but do not have TB disease. The only sign of TB infection is a positive reaction to the tuberculin skin test or TB blood test. Persons with latent TB infection are not infectious and cannot spread TB infection to others.
Those suspected or TB exposure, identified with PPD reactor, schedule with PCM for Chest X-Ray and Tuberculin Blood test.  Those with recent travel OCONUS or born in endemic areas request appointment with Provider for appropriate LTBI action.

What is Travel Medicine?

Active Duty and eligible beneficiaries that want to travel outside the United States of America for personal reasons and desire preventive medicine for endemic areas may request the Community Health Department for Travel Medicine Services. Persons travelling via military orders (Active Duty and dependents) should contact their PCM for an Overseas Suitability Screening.
