STD home testing kiosks launched in LA County

LOS ANGELES

Los Angeles County health leaders are launching a series of high-tech kiosks to distribute home testing kits.

They say the kiosks will be cheaper than making clinic appointments and allow people to get kits in privacy. Users will be able to get test results online or by phone.

L.A. County leads the nation in chlamydia cases and is second in gonorrhea cases. Both can cause serious problems like sterility or issues in childbirth.
