Chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis are the three most commonly reported sexually transmissible bacterial infections in NSW. These sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are important, not only because of their burden of disease and long-term complications, but also because they increase the risk of HIV transmission. This Bug Breakfast provided an overview of these infections and outlined the NSW Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy for 2006–2009.
