Customers can now order testing kits for UTI and STI screening (including gonorrhoea and chlamydia) via Zapp to receive fast, convenient diagnosis and treatment for these common infections. The partnership will grow further as Certific continues to expand its product set within home diagnostics and treatment, using its medical knowledge and technology platform and Zapp’s customer-centric approach to retail.
There were approximately 317,000 cases of STIs diagnosed in England during 2020, and according to data from Statista, 51% of these were chlamydia. Similarly, 40% of women are expected to suffer from a UTI during their lifetime, with 4.8 million women in the UK suffering from one each year, yet testing and treatment for these infections is not accessible enough.
Other providers can take a week to process test results, which delays diagnosis and treatment, leaving the patient uncomfortable or unknowingly infecting others. Certific offers same-day results, removing these problems.
