SH:24 makes it easier for people to get tested for the four most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
They provide free test kits, information and advice - 24 hours a day.
The service is quick, discreet and completely confidential.
SH:24 was set up by a team of public health professionals, sexual health clinicians, designers and academics and is designed around people’s needs.
It works alongside existing HSE services with the simple aim of improving health and wellbeing.
