Tinder Now Have STD Testing Locator on Its Website

Tinder, STD, Dating sites

After quarreling with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Tinder added a STD Testing Locator function on their website.

The new function give their user information on how to prevent STD. Their new STD prevention function comes after the AIDS Healthcare Foundation in September launched an advocacy campaign about sexual health and safety on dating sites, specifically placing Tinder on their ads in billboards around Los Angeles and New York City. The foundation are alarmed since the STD rates in the United States hit an all-time high.

Tinder accused AIDS Healthcare Foundation of self-promotion at their expense just to get people to take an HIV test offered by the organization.

Tinder is now heeding the organization call for healthy relationship with the added website feature. Jessica Carbino of Tinder said, "Tinder is proud to empower millions of users to create relationship. An important aspect of any healthy relationship — whether formed on Tinder or otherwise — is ensuring sexual health and safety. We'd be delighted to see other major social networks follow in our footsteps in educating the public."

AIDS Healthcare Foundation for their part promise to remove their  billboards and ads mentioning Tinder now that the online dating service has added a link to Healthvana's testing locator on its website.
