Abstract

Sexually transmitted infections are important causes of illness and death in Australia and globally. Populations particularly affected in Australia include young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and homosexual men. We have established a highly successful collaboration between two leading centres, that will discover new information about the biology of infection, and assess new clinical strategies for preventing and treating these infections and their consequences
