Hula app makes discussing STDs and STD tests much less awkward

45 sec read

Hula is making it easier for students to share STD reports. CEO Ramin Bastani created the app to make discussing STD testing results with partners less intimidating and more “flirtatious and fun.” Hula, Bastani’s website and mobile app for iPhones, aims to do that. “We want to dramatically reduce the transmission of HIV and STDs around the country,” Bastani said. “And we think Hula will help do it.”

This may be the final frontier for privacy: a social networking mobile app to share information about sexually transmitted diseases. And while it may seem off-putting, a company called Hula is attempting to execute the concept in a way that is discrete and promotes healthiness. By enabling sharing of verified test results, the Hula app, which formerly went by, aims to make a certain conversation between prospective romantic partners “less awkward,” according to the company’s website. Hula has two main functions: helping a user to get tested and then sharing the results. The app provides lists of local testing clinics and doctors. After getting tested, a user can sign up for Hula with personal information and details about the test location. The app then sends a medical records request to the person’s specified care provider and eventually uploads the results.
