Florida Department of Health in Broward County



The Florida Department of Health in Broward County (DOH-Broward) Communicable Disease Program encompasses disease reporting, prevention, investigation and control, surveillance, diagnosis, and treatment. Through the ongoing systematic collection, analysis, evaluation, and dissemination of epidemiologic data regarding HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases (STD), tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis and other reportable diseases and conditions, DOH-Broward identifies case rates, trends, and disease distribution. This information is then shared with partners and used to plan and evaluate prevention and patient care activities. DOH-Broward monitors disease trends for potential outbreaks and takes the necessary control measures to prevent outbreaks. In addition, DOH-Broward provides diagnosis and treatment for HIV/AIDS, TB and STDs, directly or through contracted providers and community partners, in order to reduce transmission and improve health outcomes.
