[Comment] No benefit of chlamydia screening in primary care?

Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial infection worldwide. Persistent, untreated infection with C trachomatis leads to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and other complications, including ectopic pregnancy and tubal factor infertility. Researchers have shown that interventions that shorten the duration of infection through timely detection and treatment decrease PID incidence by 32%.1 On the basis of that and other evidence, many high-income countries support annual screening and treatment programmes for chlamydia in young women, repeated screening of those who are infected, and expedited partner treatment.
