Generating a medically ready force means identifying gaps in care and filling those needs; one of those gaps being the sexual health of active-duty personnel.
Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune’s Department of Public Health has made strides in the past several years to care for the sexual health of Marines and Sailors. In September, NMCCL announced it would become a satellite site for the U.S. Navy’s HIV Evaluation and Testing Units or HETUs.
The satellite site was made possible through a partnership with NMCP and the Navy Bloodborne Infection Management Center. Together, the entities have established protocols and resources to care for patients with HIV at NMCCL.
