Abstract

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed bacterial STI worldwide with serious complications – in women, 17% of infections will develop into pelvic inflammatory disease which can lead to infertility. While screening is needed, chlamydia control policy must prioritise case management to reduce complications associated with infection. We aim to reduce the burden of chlamydia infection and its complications by implementing a model of chlamydia case management in general practice.
