The ordering phase of the online STI testing pilot in Ireland has now closed.
If you have already ordered a test, you can still return it to get your results, and if you need help with an existing order or results, you can reply to any text message from SH:24 to get in touch with our clinical team.
You can access confidential sexual and reproductive health services and support from any of the HSE's clinics across Ireland.
If you have 2 spare minutes, please complete this short survey about accessing sexual health services in Ireland. We would especially like to hear from people who live in rural areas.
Home STI test kits for Dublin, Cork and Kerry
The HSE and SH:24 are partnering to offer free chlamydia, gonorrhoea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis and HIV home test kits as part of a new pilot project, which aims to find out how online services can help support people’s sexual health.
Home STI tests were available to order online for residents of County Dublin, Cork and Kerry. The project is now being evaluated.
