CASES of chlamydia, gonorrhea,

& syphilis

In Indiana, cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are required to be reported to the health department in your area within one business day of diagnosis; healthcare providers should not report cases of herpes or trichomoniasis.


Cases can be reported via the Indiana Confidential Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Report State Form 56459 by fax, or online via the REDCap Survey links below.


Diseases should be reported separately in the appropriate survey (e.g., Gonorrhea cases should be reported in the Gonorrhea survey and NOT in the Chlamydia or Syphilis survey).


Fax numbers for each STD district (where your local health department or affiliated community-based agencies are located) are included on the STD DIS Contact Map.
