Grindr, a dating platform that caters primarily for gay and bisexual men, says its partnership with Burnett Foundation Aotearoa will allow it to offer free HIV self-test kits to users throughout New Zealand. Users can order the kits from the foundation directly via links in the Grindr app. Grindr said it was the latest step in its work to advance public health for the LGBTQ+ community, driven by Grindr for Equality, the company’s global social impact initiative. Grindr had already been working with the foundation, promoting safe sex practices and periodically sharing in-app messages.
