The Second District STD Control Plan


We as adults are failing our youth if we don’t provide them with the proper tools to evaluate their choices so that they are able to make the best decisions.  We are also failing our young people if we don’t adequately convey an understanding that they are a big part of the society, that they are vital to the structure of our communities and that their wellbeing is of utmost importance. We need an approach that goes beyond graphs, statistics, maps and data to provide direction to our youth.

The Second District STD Control Plan embraces a comprehensive community-engaged strategy that seeks to give youth the best available guidance and tools to enable them to make better choices regarding their physical, mental and sexual health. A clinical approach alone will not be effective in preventing STD without addressing the underlying issues of self-worth and self-respect.  Through this initiative, we want to enable the youth to value themselves enough to take action to protect themselves from high-risk behaviors.

The Second District STD Control Plan incorporates six components:

  • Community Engagement
  • Expanded Screening
  • Social Marketing
  • Case Management
  • School Level Programs
  • Public Relations

The STD Community Advisory Group (CAG) meetings are held with stakeholders, service providers and community leaders.  Below are the agendas and the meeting minutes for the past meetings.
