Chlamydia testing rates in public health STI clinics
Project ID: 2017-028/2018 0950 014 000
Type of Response: Research report
Knowledge User: Peterborough Public Health Unit
ICES Scientist: Jeff Kwong
Summary: A recently published analysis of chlamydia testing in Ontario identified a decrease in chlamydia screening following changes in Pap testing. The medical directors of public health clinics request clarity on whether the rates have indeed decreased by looking at lab data separately from OHIP data. The data will help evaluate the effectiveness of public health clinics to screen high-risk populations in accordance with clinical guidelines.
