The STD Project
Established in April of 2012 during STD Awareness Month, The STD Project is a multi-award-winning independent website and progressive movement eradicating STD stigma by facilitating and encouraging awareness, education, and acceptance through story-telling and resource recommendations. We are taking steps toward modern-day sexual health and prevention by advocating for conscientious and informed decisions.
Through The STD Project, we post interviews with and the stories of those who have sexually transmitted infections or diseases, as well as a plethora of news and resources related to STIs/STDs: testing, treatment, prevention, and more.
Our online static content consists of over 250 comprehensive STD articles, guides and fact sheets, advice answers, extensive external resource lists for each sexually transmitted disease or infection and a growing blog. Our content is thoroughly researched and fact-checked for accuracy among a large list of global sexuality educators and reference sites. We also provide interactive services, referrals to sexual/reproductive healthcare, and global outreach offline through tabling events, project collaboration, research, clinician or staff training, and speaking engagements.
Amassing over 1 million views in its first year, The STD Project now receives over 180,000 views per month with readership in around 200 countries.
We welcome all people and all thoughtful opinions regardless of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, or experience with an STI/STD.
