Mandated Reporting and Health Department Services for STDs and HIV/AIDS
Identifying, treating, and reporting of STDs and HIV/AIDS is an important health concern. Michigan Communicable Disease Rules requires that STDs be reported within 24 hours and HIV/AIDS within 7 days.
- Michigan mandates that the following STDs and their treatment be reported utilizing form “MDCH STD DCH-0821A”:
- Chlamydia Trachomatis
- The completed two-sided form can be faxed to (517) 887-4663 or reported by phone to (517) 887-4424. You can also request access to the Michigan Disease Surveillance System (MDSS) as a reporting tool by calling (517) 887-4308.
- Upon request, Health Department Investigators will assist in locating clients who have not been treated within one week of a positive report.
- If a client cannot afford treatment, they may be referred to the Health Department.
- Information regarding provider responsibility is summarized in the document “Michigan HIV Laws-How They Affect Physicians and Other Health Care Providers”.
- Upon request, provider responsibility for partner notification can be deferred to the Health Department. We have trained staff that can assist in this process and are knowledgeable regarding community services.
- Report forms can be obtained by calling the Communicable Disease Office at (517) 887-4308.
We look forward to working together in addressing these important health concerns in our community. All information is kept strictly confidential.
