The HIV/STD Education and Prevention Services Program at the Pasadena Public Health Department provides a wide range of education and prevention services related to HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The program aims to increase awareness of HIV and STDs and to decrease the social stigma by empowering individuals to protect themselves and the community through knowledge, understanding, and risk-reduction. The completely confidential testing process requires a fingerstick sample of blood and involves pre- and post-test counseling with a California State Certified Counselor. Test results are kept in a confidential file. California state laws protect this result from being disclosed to anyone but the individual being tested. Clients may request a written result with their name; such documentation may be required by courts or other HIV/AIDS providers.
