A key element in the effort to reduce the spread of STD infections in Idaho is Partner Services. Partner Services are conducted by Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS). Disease intervention Specialists are trained professionals who are experts on the causes and spread of STDs. They are skilled in taking sexual histories, identifying and locating people who may have been exposed to an STD, and referring people for evaluation and treatment. They can provide counseling on behaviors that put a person at risk for STDs, including HIV infection. They always maintain the highest level of confidentiality with personal information. Disease Intervention Specialists work within each of the seven Public Health Districts in Idaho.
