Abstract

Prevention of sexually transmitted infection in teenagers is a high priority. The introduction of non-invasive methods for diagnostic testing of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae has enabled screening for these sexually transmitted micro-organisms in a range of community-based settings among populations at high risk, such as teenagers, who do not readily access existing sexual health services.
