Chlamydia trachomatis infection in males in a juvenile detention facility in Switzerland

Published in Schweizerische medizinische Wochenschrift. 2011, vol. 141, w13220
Abstract Young offenders represent a group for which Chlamydia trachomatis infection screening is recommended in the US. In the absence of local epidemiological data it is difficult to assess whether such recommendations apply to the Swiss context. Our aim was to obtain local prevalence data for Chlamydia trachomatis infection among young male offenders as a basis for screening strategies in Swiss juvenile detention centres.
