Abstract

We evaluated the results of an acceptability survey administered online to users of I Want the Kit, which offers Internet-requested kits for sexually transmitted infection screening. User satisfaction was high for I Want the Kit, with many users in our survey being repeat patients of this program. Both male and female respondents preferred genital self-collected swabs over urine collected specimens. Strong interest was expressed in home testing options for other sexually transmitted infections.
