Protect Your Parts
Dec 18, 2023
Protect Your Parts. That is the message from the Sioux Falls Health Department related to Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), which are health concerns in the community.
To increase awareness about STD and HIV screening, especially among young adults, the department shares the message to “Protect Your Parts”. The Protect Your Parts website, protectyourparts.org, is the first public health website dedicated to locating HIV and STD resources for individuals within this region. Website visitors can see all the STD and HIV testing options within the area, locations to obtain free condoms, and more. The page also has an online quiz about STD and HIV risk, and interactive maps showing clinical screening sites in eastern South Dakota and a condom distribution map in Sioux Falls.
Falls Community Health provides primary health care services and is a resource for people in the community looking for more information about STDs and screening. The clinic also offers free rapid HIV/STD testing on Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 a.m- 12 p.m. and Thursdays from 12-4 p.m. at the downtown location.
