Brief description We will undertake the first effectiveness trial of novel, newly-available, easy to use, and highly accurate point-of-care tests for the diagnosis of curable sexually transmitted and genital infections (STIs) in pregnancy. The trial will establish whether point-of-care STI testing and treatment improves pregnancy outcomes compared to routine antenatal care in developing countries. The trial will also investigate the implementation requirements, costs and acceptability of this strategy.
