The purpose of the donation is to provide HCJPD with the medication and supplies to treat sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) and tuberculosis (TB) with state and federal funds allocated for specific public health purposes that are administered and dispensed in compliance with Program regulations, as authorized by the Texas Health and Safety Code, Chapters 81, 85, and 1001. Attached to this paperwork is a Memorandum of Understanding between the Department of State Health Services and Harris County Juvenile Probation department to treat and control the spread of infectious diseases across Texas through the U.S. federal government's 340 B Drug Pricing Program.
