Stigma Health and HUD announce sexual wellbeing initiative

Dating app HUD and online sexual health clinic group, Stigma Health, are teaming up to educate HUD users on sexual wellbeing.

The announcement:

Just in time for 2024 STI Awareness Week, Australia’s largest online sexual health clinic group Stigma Health is partnering with casual dating app HUD, to educate and empower app users to take control of their sexual health and wellbeing.

“Stigma Health is excited to collaborate with HUD App to make sexual health sexy. They don’t shy away from important conversations, and neither do we,” says James Sneddon, co-founder of Stigma Health. “We love that HUD App takes the sexual health of their community seriously, and this content collaboration will ensure it’s front and centre at critical moments in the online dating scene.”

The sexy collab will see Stigma Health provide researched, expert content to ensure readers are well-informed and can feel confident they’re looking after themselves.

“At HUD App, we aren’t not afraid to talk about taboo topics,” says Mikayla Robinson, HUD App’s director of marketing. “We encourage our users to have honest, upfront conversations with their dates, and we’re thrilled to work with Stigma Health to provide research-backed, medically sound information that will help people improve their sexual health and wellbeing.”

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1 million STIs are acquired every day worldwide, the majority of which are asymptomatic – meaning someone might not even be aware they have an STI because they aren’t showing any obvious symptoms.

“We’re thrilled to be able to count on Stigma Health’s team of health professionals, who are generously sharing their expertise to help our dating app users be proactive about awareness, prevention, and treatment of STIs – eradicating any stigma or shame they might feel.” Robinson continued.

Sneddon adds, “Stigma Health is Australia’s leading provider of online STI testing, and HUD is leading the way globally when it comes to honest and upfront online dating – it’s a match made in cyber heaven!”

Stigma Heath will cover a range of important sexual wellbeing topics, such as everything you need to know about STI, how to have safe sex, PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis, which helps to protect against HIV transmission), and mythbusting about LGBTQIA2+ sexual health.
