Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) affect millions of people in the U.S. and, while effective treatments exist for the majority of infections, barriers remain to access and effective administration of these treatments. Expedited Partner Therapies (EPT) are a process by which medications are distributed to the partners of infected patients without the prior examination of a doctor. EPT is legal in Missouri (RSMo 191.648) for the treatment of partners of chlamydia and gonorrhea patients. Five states and Washington, D.C. have laws that expressly permit the use of EPT for trichomoniasis, a parasitic infection that can cause serious adverse effects in young women, including complications during pregnancy. House Bill 2386 seeks to expand the list of EPT-treatable diseases in Missouri to include trichomoniasis.
