STD/HIV Prevention
Surveillance, testing and treatment


The STD/HIV Program strives to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV infection. The program also links people to services for disease prevention and control, including health care services for HIV.

Affordable testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV infection is available from any county health department, and through partnerships with other clinics, correctional facilities, academic institutions, and community-based organizations.

If you need HIV treatment or assistance: 800-826-2961 or 601-362-4879

HIV/AIDS in Mississippi

In Mississippi, the burden of HIV is disproportionately high for men who have sex with men (MSM). Among men whose risk factors for HIV are known, about 80 percent of men reported having male-to-male sexual contact. The burden of new HIV cases is highest among younger black males (ages 20-24), while young adults aged 20-29 as a whole represent the largest group of newly diagnosed cases. Testing and treatment is essential for these at-risk groups. More HIV statistics
