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 
    • Gonorrhea 
    • Syphilis 
    • Chancroid 
  • 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. 


We look forward to working together in addressing these important health concerns in our community. All information is kept strictly confidential.
