Description:
www.iknowmine.org is the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consoritum STD Program’s new and exciting sexual health website for youth! This website is intended to give teenagers and adolescents the tools necessary to make healthy decisions when it comes to sex. On iknowmine.org youth can: order condoms, order chlamydia and gonorrhea home testing kits [coming soon in 2010], ask sexual health questions to Anchorage-based providers, find specific information on STDs, HIV, unplanned pregnancy and related issues, find HIV/STD testing locations throughout Alaska, request testing appointments, watch videos and read stories about STDs/HIV and unplanned pregnancy and participate in polls, surveys and a blog. We also encourage you to use this website as a portal for sexual health education, information and resources. If you want to receive more materials please feel free to email Jessica Leston at jdleston@anthc.org or Connie Jessen at cmjessen@anthc.org. You can also reach us toll free at 877-334-8762.
