Chlamydia most prevalent sexually transmitted infection across Europe; rates of gonorrhoea and syphilis increasing

The report Sexually transmitted infections in Europe 2011 presents EU-wide data on four STI and congenital syphilis from 1990–2011 as reported by countries of the European Union and the European Economic Area (EU/EEA). The data show that young adults and men having sex with men (MSM) are the key groups involved in the transmission of STI in Europe. Young adults particularly contribute to the case numbers of chlamydia, which can partly be explained by targeted chlamydia testing in this age group.
