Syphilis Health Check Donation: STD Awareness Week, April 12-18, 2020
Apply below to be considered for a donation of syphilis tests thanks to Diagnostics Direct!
February 19, 2020
STD Testing, Syphilis
The goal for this donation is to award 2,000 tests to several different sites that are planning an STD testing event as part of their STD Awareness Week activities. Awarded sites may be asked to write a brief blog about their Syphilis Health Check activities. Tests are limited so apply early!
Syphilis Health CheckTM is the first and only CLIA waived tests that detect Treponema pallidum antibodies in human whole blood, serum or plasma and takes 10 minutes to process. This test should be performed only on patients who do not have a previous history of syphilis. All supplies are subject to availability of stock. Questions can be directed to Desiree Smith, manager, health equity.
Submission of this form does not guarantee a Syphilis Health CheckTM donation.
This test would be ideal for:
A facility that does onsite stat nontreponemal tests but sends samples out for confirmatory testing
A facility that has considered transitioning to this test but would like the opportunity to pilot this test first
Areas this test would be ideal for are:
Rural areas that are experiencing an increase in syphilis
Areas with high rates of maternal and congenital syphilis
Areas near urban centers that are experiencing increases in syphilis
Applications are open through Tuesday, March 10, 2020.
Thank you to Diagnostics Direct for this generous donation!
