Several County Health Departments Trained in Rapid HIV/Syphilis Testing

Administrators and nurses from Grundy County Health Department, Carroll County - Missouri - Health Department, Mercer County Health Department, Daviess County Health Department, Caldwell County Health Department-Missouri, Harrison County Health Dept., Home Health & Hospice and of course Livingston County Health Center attended a Rapid HIV/Syphilis Training put on by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Bureau of HIV, STD, and Hepatitis today in our basement conference room.


All of the entities have signed on to provide Rapid HIV/Syphilis testing in the future at their respective health departments via a finger stick.


This will increase early detection of HIV and Syphilis for better treatment outcomes, and provide the knowledge to decrease the spread of both diseases.


Announcements will be made when each health department begins offering testing.
