CVIS patients can easily access screening for sexually transmitted infections (STI) such as syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia (lymphogranuloma venereum) and hepatitis, either as part of usual follow-up or in the situation of symptoms or concerns about infection.
Similarly, the sexual and injecting partners of CVIS patients are also welcome to be screened for STIs (including HIV and hepatitis). Services available include:
- HIV testing
- STI testing (gonorrhea/chlamydia/syphilis), and treatment, when appropriate
- Hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C testing (including being offered vaccination to protect you from hepatitis A virus (HAV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, when appropriate)
