Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also called sexually transmitted infections (STIs), like HIV, chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea affect sexually active people of all ages and walks of life. That’s why it’s essential to know how to prevent infection, where to get tested, and where to go if you need treatment.
At the University of Miami Division of Infectious Diseases, we make it easier to get the guidance and care you need. You can access a wide range of services, from education and preventive services to treatment, community outreach, research, and more.
Our doctors, nurses, researchers, and care coordinators offer personalized attention and guidance to keep you healthy. We also do leading-edge research to discover better ways of preventing STIs and make sure education and services are available to those who need it most.
Our team offers trusted care and resources to keep you safe and healthy.
