Who We Are
So They Can Know is a project of Sexual Health Innovations, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating technology that advances sexual health and wellbeing in the United States. We are funded through private donations and foundation support. This website was designed and developed entirely by volunteers.
What We Do
This website is designed to improve sexual health by giving people the ability to anonymously inform their partners of possible sexually transmitted disease (STD) transmission. Although we recognize that this is not the preferred form of partner notification, we hope that this site will help fill in the gaps when people are unable or unwilling to notify their partners some other way. We envision a world where we can use the disease to fight itself- to turn lines of disease transmission into lines of communication until everyone with an STD knows their status and can do something about it (even if that something is just using a condom). We also strive to present sexual health information on this site in a way that will be as useful as possible to people who have questions about STDs.
This website was formed in 2012 by a group of dedicated volunteers specializing in a variety of fields and with the input of public health professionals from across the United States.
