Free Home Test for Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Pilot study of a free home test kit for sexually transmitted diseases

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have launched the first government-sponsored study to measure the effectiveness of a Web- and community-based home test kit for common sexually transmitted diseases, such as Chlamydia and gonorrhea.

The study will measure how many women make use of the kit, determine disease prevalence among respondents, record how effectively test results can be returned to the participants, and assess how well respondents who test positive follow through with therapy.

I imagine the response will be overwhelming. 500 kits to start with ... well, 499, {cough}
