Abstract [en]

Despite usage of considerable resources the number of detected chlamydia cases in Sweden has increased by 300% since 1997. The reported rates of diagnosed chlamydia cases per 100,000 inhabitants differs about two-fold between Swedish counties. This study analyzed chlamydia testing in women from nine Swedish counties with different reported rates of diagnosed cases between 1997 and 2005. Testing was highest in the age group 20-24 years old, where the proportion annually tested ranged between 20% and 40%. Of all detected chlamydia cases in Sweden with complete information (70%) “screening” was reported as the reason for testing in 12% of women in 2005 while partner notification was given as the reason in 40%. Corresponding figures for men were 3% and 64%, respectively. Partner notification is the most important reason for case detection in both women and men, while “screening” was a less common reason. At this level of screening, no impact on chlamydia transmission in the population would be expected.
