Increasing detection of
sexually transmitted diseases to slow
The world sees hundreds of millions of new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) each year3. In addition to their impact on quality of life and reproductive health, STDs also indirectly facilitate the sexual transmission of HIV4, which in itself sees 1.8 million new cases a year5. Yet millions of those infected by STDs, including approximately over 11 million people living with HIV/AIDS, are unaware of their status6, and continue to spread the diseases unknowingly.
PHASE Scientific is currently developing STD test kits that will allow anyone to take the tests anywhere at any time. Connected to our health data platform via a mobile app, patients can choose to consult with a healthcare professional remotely, in total privacy. We believe this will encourage more people to find out their status, get treatment, and slow the spreading of the diseases.
