Per that agreement, 50 percent of the award was to be provided to a community-based organization (CBO) to provide STD investigations, partner notifications, and linkage to care. The Health and Human Services Department (Health Department) provides support activities for those who are infected with an STD, including monitoring, prevention, case investigation, and linkage to care. This partnership between the Health Department and the selected CBO assures testing, treatment, and disease transmission is mitigated for those who are at the highest risk of contracting a STD.
