The health authority is working with community partners to raise awareness of the importance of regular sexual health screening and to make screening more accessible.

“In keeping with Eastern Health’s strategic plan focusing on access, sustainability, population health, and quality and safety, we are taking steps to normalize STI testing and to build testing capacity throughout the region,” Judy O’Keefe, Eastern Health’s vice president responsible for public health, said in a news release.

Partnering groups for the clinics are Newfoundland and Labrador Sexual Health Centre-Planned Parenthood, Memorial University Student Health, the AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador (ACNL) and the College of the North Atlantic (CNA).
