Abstract

Chlamydia trachomatis is a significant public health burden. Annual chlamydia testing is recommended for young people attending Australian general practice, and is required to reduce chlamydia prevalence, but testing rates remain low. This research will evaluate the impact of a chlamydia testing intervention on Australian general practitioners’ chlamydia testing rates, knowledge and attitudes. Findings will provide evidence to support future chlamydia control programs in Australia.
