Free STI testing for those aged 17 and over has been has been expanded to entire country

People will be able to order an STI kit online, which is then delivered to their address by post.

Once users complete the test at home, they then post the samples back to the laboratory in a pre-paid envelope.

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says the whole process will be confidential:

“So anyone who’s 17 years and above, they can go online, they’ll be sent the testing kit to their home, they send that off in a prepaid envelope to a lab, and I think more and more people will find it not intimidating in any way. We’ve all become very used to rapid testing for Covid over the last two to three years so I think it’s just that people will see it as a normal part of healthcare.”
