Tue, 28 Jun 2011


Chlamydia cases on the Island have been falling over the last four years.

The number of people diagnosed with the sexually transmitted infection have fallen by nearly 40% from 218 in 2007 to 137 in the last year.

In the same period, referrals to the Genito-urinary Medicine clinic remained at a similar level.

Health Minister David Anderson revealed the figures in the House of Keys, in response to a question from Onchan MHK Peter Karran.

Mr Karran also asked about a plan for chlamydia screening on the Island.

Mr Anderson says his Department is looking into it, if the funds are available [play clip]
