Free home STI tests

The HSE Sexual Health and Crisis Pregnancy Programme (SHCPP) is piloting a free home STI testing project in partnership with online STI testing provider, SH:24.

The project is being piloted in Dublin, Cork and Kerry. This means that anyone with an address in these counties can order a free STI test to their home. If follow-up treatment or support is needed, this is provided for free by HSE-funded STI clinics in Dublin and Cork.

The ordering phase of the online STI testing pilot project in Ireland has now closed.

If you have already ordered a test, you can still return it to get your results.

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 the clinical team or visit sh24.ie.

A formal evaluation of the pilot project is now being undertaken.

If you have symptoms or need urgent support, contact your local sexual health service or your GP.
