STD Education

Bell County is ranked the highest county in the State of Texas for chlamydia and gonorrhea infections. According to the data provided by the Texas HIV/STD Unit's 2017 Report we are seeing rates that are comparable to larger counties in Texas such as Harris, Bexar, and Dallas than to counties closer to our size. STD’s can pose a significant health burden and often go untreated because many individuals with an STD do not have symptoms. It is a common misconception that symptoms are always present.

Our clinics in Temple and Killeen offer low or no cost STD testing and treatment which also includes education and risk reduction counseling. Our staff are well trained to confidentially manage testing and/or treatment for sexually transmitted diseases according to current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  

See the links below for more information. If you have further questions, please contact us by calling the Health District or visiting one of our clinics in Temple or Killeen.
