About us

Sexual Health 101 is an online STI testing service. Our aim is to increase options for STI testing in New Zealand, and to make testing accessible for everyone who needs it.

All tests are analysed at fully accredited medical laboratories (ISO 15189), using gold standard methods. Our service is supported by excellent clinical oversight and our treatment advice reflects national and international best practice.
