According to Dr. Jonathan Fielding, Director of Public Health, “Young African-American and Latina women 15 to 24 in central and south Los Angeles have been particularly impacted by sexually transmitted disease.”

As a result of the increase in sexually transmitted diseases, county officials launched the nation’s first and largest home test kit campaign.

The DontThinkKnow.org program will allow women to order free test kits, find out if they have chlamydia or gonorrhea, then get information on where to seek treatment – all anonymously online or through text messages.
