Infectious Disease

Coronavirus Questions?

We diagnose and treat a wide variety of infections and diseases, including HIV/AIDS, meningitis, influenza, mycobacterial and Lyme disease. Our expertise in infectious disease prevention and treatment covers antibiotic resistance, bone and joint infections, diarrheal diseases, sexually transmitted diseases, tick-borne diseases, tropical medicine, fungal infections and more. 

At UVA, you'll get treatment backed up by the latest research. Currently, we are developing new or improved ways to address infections from amebiasis, anthrax, tularemia, C. difficile, pneumonia and other emerging infectious diseases.

We also offer immunizations and other medical services for foreign travelers.

STDs on the Rise

The number of people getting infected with common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) has been increasing.

Take care of your sexual health. Make sure to:

  • Use condoms
  • Get tested often
  • Speak honestly with your provider about your sexual history

We're here to help you with both expertise and compassion. Learn about our STD testing services.

When Antibiotics Don't Work

A C. diff infection causes severe diarrhea. When antibiotics don't work, the infection becomes life-threatening. Fecal transplant is an effective alternative.
