12 September 2012
The Health Protection Agency released a press release about surveillance figures which indicate that, for the first time in five years, the risk of resistance developing in currently recommended gonorrhoea treatments fell slightly in 2011.
The HPA press release can be found here.
Speaking on behalf of Brook and FPA, Lynn Hearton (FPA Helpline and Information Services Manager) said:
“Repeat infection is a real concern and reinforces the importance of the promotion of safer sex messages and quick and easy access to sexual health services in order to prevent sexually transmitted infections and to break the cycle of reinfection.”
