Are you worried about something, or have you had unsafe sex? Then your best next step is to have an STI check-up.
On Saba there are two options to schedule an STI check–up.
Saba Cares offers a broad range of STI tests.
To test: call Saba Cares on +599.416.3288 and request an appointment with one of the doctors.
The Public Health department also offers STI testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia via test kits. Call the STI hotline on +599.416.5566 and speak to the public health nurse about receiving a test kit.
Both options will provide you with a professional, confidential service.
Do you have casual sex or multiple sexual partners? Make sure you are tested for STIs and HIV at least every 6 months. Are you a man who has sex with men? It is recommended that you are vaccinated against hepatitis B. You can request this at Saba Cares.
“I rather they call my name to say I got an STI-test than to call my name saying I gave people something.”
Smith, 17 years old
I went for an STI-test recently. I was at risk because I was having sex with different people and wanted to know for sure I didn’t get or share anything. Why be naïve? It is important to know to keep others safe. I felt nervous and I thought that everyone might find out here on Saba. That it was all out there. But just do it, bro. It makes you more aware. And I rather they call my name to say I got a STI-test than to call my name saying I gave people something.
