SSP BioAnalytics plans to launch STD/HIV health status ID card system

SSP BioAnalytics : 29 November, 2007  (New Product)
SSP BioAnalytics plans to launch the world's first integrated STD/HIV Health Status ID Card System, the Safe Sex Passport (SSP) on December 1, 2007, in conjunction with World Aids Day.
Designed to help prevent the spread of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) by providing individuals and their partners with an added layer of information 'protection', the company will begin offering SSP Cards and Online Health Certificates for use on dating and social networking websites at SafeSexPassport.com.

The Safe Sex Passport is part of a confidential and digitally secure ID card system that enables the cardholder to share their current STD test results with a partner prior to any intimate activities. Test results are accessed from an Interactive Voice Response system by using the SSP Card serial number and user defined security code.

The SSP system typically costs $300 for six months ($274 for renewals), which includes the SSP Card, unlimited Online Health Certificates and STD/HIV testing through a nationwide network of laboratories. SSP cardholders will be retested every six months as recommended by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The CDC estimates that 15.3 million new cases of STDs (excluding HIV) occur every year in the USA. 'Most people don't know that one in five adults in the USA have an STD. With close to 90 million singles out there, a large percentage of them will be affected by STDs at some point in their life,' said Gonzalo Paternoster, SSP BioAnalytics founder and president. 'I was compelled to develop an 'outside the box' approach to prevent the spread of STDs and HIV.

'The Safe Sex Passport is designed to meet the needs of today's adult population by providing a new level of dating confidence, disclosure and personal health protection, both in person and online.'
