Resume sexual health services and provide at home STD testing

Many of the sexual health services have been shut during the lockdown. It's been harder for people to access STD testing and contraception - for instance, the C Card scheme in Edinburgh points are shut. As we start to release lockdown, these services will be critical to the sexual health of Scotland, especially as there may be an increase in sexual activity as people see new partners. We are also at a good point to ask people to consider an STD test before seeing a new partner - the spread of STDs will have been slowed significantly by lockdown and its a unique opportunity to provide home testing and reduce the incidence of common STDs.

Why the contribution is important

More human contact allowed = more need for sexual health services.
