SPRINGFIELD, Mass., September 16, 2021 (Newswire.com) – HealthTestFinder.com announces the addition of over 4,500 STD testing labs to its health care testing portal. In addition to the added labs, clients can find in-home test kits for STDs and over 50 health and wellness tests.
The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated an already stretched system for STD control in the United States. Resources that were devoted to fighting STDs were diverted to fighting COVID-19. According to one survey, as of 2021, about one-third of state and local STD program staff are still deployed to assist with COVID-19 response efforts. This accelerated the need to deliver accessible, high-quality STD testing services.
HealthTestFinder.com clients can find a 14 panel STD test, the most comprehensive test ever. It tests for HIV (I & II), hepatitis C, herpes simplex type II, syphilis, chlamydia & gonorrhea (3-site), trichomoniasis, mycoplasma genitalium, and an optional test for HPV. The tests are 100% confidential, FDA approved, and a doctor’s prescription is not required.
The CDC recently reported that there was a nearly 30% increase in these reportable STDs between 2015 and 2019. This is the latest data available, and the COVID-19 pandemic most likely made the situation worse because it diverted STD testing and treatment resources to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While everyone was focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, the STD pandemic was getting worse while at the same time resources that were available to fight STDs were being diverted for fighting COVID-19. By developing a gateway to over 4,500 walk-in clinics and millions of in-home test kits, we make STD testing more accessible at this critical time,” said Mike Sarrage CEO of HealthTestFinder.com.
In addition to STD tests, the portal also connects the consumer to thyroid screening tests, colorectal cancer screening, cholesterol, inflammation, fertility testosterone, exposure to heavy metals including cadmium, arsenic, lead, and mercury found in food, water, or the environment.
Located in Springfield, Massachusetts, Healthtestfinder.com is a leading directory of health and wellness testing companies. Our portal provides a gateway to over 4,500 labs nationwide offering over 50 health and wellness lab tests.
