Description

Revisiting an old sexually transmitted infection in the 21st century: Gonorrhoea

Gonorrhoea is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and the rate of infection is increasing at an alarming rate not only in Australia but also in many western countries such as the US and UK. The rise in antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae may make gonorrhoea very difficult to treat, allowing for its rapid spread through sexual networks. As such, gonorrhoea has become a major emerging global public health problem. This seminar discusses previously unexplored risk factors, transmission routes and interventions for gonorrhoea in the past last 100 years.
