How can we control the spread of sexually transmitted infections among Australian men and women?
Grant number: 566576 | Funding period: 2009 - 2013
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as chlamydia are increasing. Without effective vaccines, STIs can only be controlled by behavioral or screening interventions. This program of research will help us understand how STIs such as chlamydia, Mycoplasma genitalium, HPV and bacterial vaginosis spread among Australians and will help us to determine how best to control them.
