        • An at-home STI testing kit


          from shadlyn / Added

          Notice is a new service and solution for testing STI's in your own home. In the CDC’s Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance 2013, Cook County, IL, ranked as the second highest county in the United States for cases and transmission rates of chlamydia, of gonorrhea, and of syphilis. To improve urban health, we propose offering a two-pronged service that will first do an online risk assessment and then send an STI testing kit for in-home use. The target population is women in Cook County who think they may have one or more STI. In 2013 alone, there were a total of 40,590 cases for gonorrhea and chlamydia. The conventional approaches to lower transmission rates are to educate in the school system and to promote the use of physical barriers, such as condoms. Our approach, however, enables individuals to learn their personal sexual health status and thus make informed decisions in practicing safer sex in their community. Our concept is to develop an STI testing kit for high-risk individuals to use at home, affording them to conveniently get results without fearing getting shamed. Through our research, it became evident that fear and shame become major barriers to getting tested. Rather than going to a clinic, many self diagnose by searching online, become overwhelmed, and do not get definitive answers. Our solution gives clear answers with tailored information that provides peace of mind.
