Sexually Transmitted Disease - STD Clinic
The Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Clinic at Capital Health is a drop-in clinic that provides diagnostic testing, treatment and counselling for persons with suspected or known sexually transmitted infections (STIs) also know as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Clients typically visit the clinic because they have a perceived risk of STIs and desire information and testing, or they have a known STI and require treatment. Diagnostic testing and treatment are provided free of charge.

Confidentiality is maintained by operating on a “non-nominal” basis. This means that clients’ names are not used to identify clinical samples sent to the laboratory and clients’ names do not appear on laboratory reports. Each client is the assigned a unique identification number at the time of registration. This number is then used to identify clinical samples and laboratory reports.
Note: All positive test results are reported to the Department of Health (DOH). Names must be provided to the DOH if requested, particularly in situations where community follow up is required. The DOH will assist with notification of clients and partners who require treatment and/or further testing.
