Caraway, Ash Wellness Launch Partnership to Combat Rise in STIs on College Campuses

Through the partnership, members of Caraway can order an STI Kit, which is delivered to their door and is geared toward Gen Z. The kits have tests for STIs and sexual health, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV, hepatitis C, trichomoniasis, candidiasis and bacterial vaginosis. Members then ship the tests to be evaluated at one of Ash’s lab partners, and Caraway then reaches out to the patient with results. If treatment is needed, the patients are connected with a provider on Caraway’s team.
