STD Clinic

The MGH Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Practice, also known as the Genitourinary Infectious Disease (GID) Clinic, has been in existence for over 50 years. We provide bias-free sexual health care to clients, education for providers in training, and conduct research to contribute to the greater understanding of sexually transmitted infections. Services are confidential and affordable to all. We are LGBTQI friendly. Insurance is not required for most services.
