First Project: Chlamydia screening in community pharmacies
Chlamydia trachomatis is the most commonly encountered Sexally Transmitted Infection (STI). Since the infection is mostly asymptomatic in women, screening of persons at risk is a public health issue. Our collegues from the University of Western Australia investigated self-reported risk factors for Chlamydia in community pharmacies by interviewing emergency contraception consumers.
First a master student from Basel will join the team in Perth (Western Australia), to help in developing the design of a Chlamydia study, and to evaluate its feasibility in Switzerland.
