STIQ Day - 14 January 2011


STIQ Day - 14 January 2011

On 14 January 2011, a new initiative, STIQ Day, is launched to raise awareness of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and to encourage people to think about their sexual health and have regular sexual health checks. Each year the infection rate for STIs is rising at an alarming rate, regardless of age, race, gender or sexual orientation and STI rates are now at a record level in the UK. This date was chosen as a prompt following the festive season, as many common STIs such as Chlamydia can take two weeks to be detectable.

STIQ Day is supported by The STI Clinic, The Terrence Higgins Trust, Mates Condoms and Freedom Health.

Visit www.stiq.co.uk for more information about sexually transmitted infections, testing and treatment.
