The mission of the STD Control Branch is to reduce the transmission and impact of sexually transmitted diseases and viral hepatitis in California. The branch supports STD and hepatitis prevention and control efforts through providing statewide leadership, guidance, training, technical assistance, and surge capacity, and by supporting safety-net service delivery in priority settings. We carry out this mission in collaboration with local health jurisdictions and stakeholders in the public and private sectors.
The STD Control Branch is part of the Division of Communicable Disease Control, within the Center for Infectious Diseases, of the California Department of Public Health. The Chief of the STD Control Branch is Kathleen Jacobson, MD.
