inSPOT e-cards to notify a partner to be tested for STIs

2011 August 02

As an organization who provides STI service to many people in Victoria, we know that conversations about STIs can be difficult conversations to have. Informing a partner (current or past) about the possibility that they have been exposed to a STI may be one of the most challenging and high pressure conversations a person has. A new service to BC called inSPOT is a tool to help make those situations less pressured.

inSPOT is an online service that provides a free, easy and anonymous way for people to send an e-card to their sex partners to be tested for STIs. inSPOT also provides information about where people can go to get STI and HIV testing in BC, Toronto, Ottawa and several regions in the US. inSPOT is another tool to help people be as sexually healthy as possible.
