MODELLING THE IMPACT OF STRATEGIES TO CONTROL GONORRHOEA AND MINIMISE THE THREAT OF ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE IN REMOTE INDIGENOUS AND OTHER HIGH RISK POPULATIONS
Grant number: 1145642 | Funding period: 2018 - 2020
Gonorrhoea is a serious public health issue in Australia. Notification rates are disproportionately high among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and men who have sex with men, and there is evidence of an emerging epidemic in the general heterosexual population. Additionally, available treatments are under threat from resistant strains. We will use mathematical modelling to evaluate strategies for controlling gonorrhoea and for minimising the threat of antimicrobial resistance.
