Abstract

Prevention and control of STIs in the 21st century requires timely, effective and high-resolution investigations which may be provided by genomic technologies. Building on existing datasets and expertise, we will provide a blueprint for genomics-based tracking of bacterial STIs in Australia, including the translation of this information to effect novel targeted public health actions, including screening, monitoring for outbreaks, and focused interventions to enhance control.
