Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that can be transmitted through sexual contact with an infected individual. As the Public Health Department, it is our goal to protect the health of the community through prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate management and control of STDs. This is achieved through surveillance, disease investigation, patient education, community awareness and acting as a resource to local physicians, nurses and medical personnel.

STD FAQ

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that can be transmitted through sexual contact with an infected individual. STDs can be transmitted during vaginal or other types of sexual intercourse including oral and anal sex. Since STDs often do not have any symptoms, the only way to know if someone has an STD is to get tested.

Data & Reports

In an effort to combat the spread of STDs, all counties in California confidentially track and report the number of confirmed STD cases in their community. The Butte County Public Health Department monitors the number of reported STDs in our county as well as administers a range of programs and services.

Provider Resources

The Butte County Public Health Department acts as a resource to local physicians, nurses, and medical personnel. Providers are notified of current outbreaks, updated treatment guidelines, and provided guidance for communicable disease reporting.
