Brief description This project will trial a new kind of test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea that can provide immediate results at the time of clinical consultation. The trial will take place in remote Aboriginal communities. These tests have the potential to reduce re-infection rates by ensuring that people with infection have timely treatment. Health services will undertake standard practice in one year, and supplement standard practice by rapid point-of-care testing in the other year in a randomly assigned order.
