Liberty County Health Department

Welcome to the Liberty County Health Department, where our goal is to improve the health of our citizens by providing a range of public health services. We are proud to serve the citizens of Liberty County, including Fort Stewart, home of the 3rd Infantry Division. We have a dedicated Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) nutritional clinic on Fort Stewart and an independent, dedicated clinic to serve the needs of those living with HIV/AIDS in our county. We provide STD testing and STD Treatment. Our STD testing options include HIV testing, gonorrhea testing, chlamydia testing and syphilis testing. We have a long history of service to our community and continue that mission through projects such as BRAVE (Be Readily Available and Very Empathetic). BRAVE targets uninsured and underserved women in rural Liberty County in an effort to encourage them to seek appropriate breast care including monthly self breast exams, annual mammograms and necessary follow-up and diagnostic services. We also provide immunizations, pap smears and family planning services including birth control and pregnancy testing.
