Mail-in test (S.A.M)


What is a mail-in test?

The single-submission test is a good way to get tested regularly for HIV and the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhoea without having to go to a test centre every time. Instead, you will regularly be offered a test kit so that you can take the samples (blood, urine, swabs) yourself and send them to a laboratory. The whole thing is organised via the s.a.m health pilot project.
