Get Yourself Tested
April is Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Awareness Month. This month, take the time to learn more about STIs, get tested, and spread the word.
- People between the ages of 15 to 24 account for half of all new cases of STIs in the United States
- Only 12% of young people say they have been tested in the past year
- Many people who have an STI are asymptomatic, meaning they don’t have symptoms. An STI can cause serious health problems if left undetected and untreated.
Check out the following resources to learn more:
- University Health Services (UHS): who should get tested, walk-in clinic schedule, schedule an appointment
- American Sexual Health Association (ASHA): facts about Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and condoms, how to reduce your risk
- Get Yourself Tested (GYT): get tested and treated for STDs and HIV to protect your health as well as others. Check out the digital materials, sample social media, and graphics to run a campaign.
