Chlamydia Trachomatis Screening Project

The aim of this project was to reduce the asymptomatic pool of CT infections for young people in the high priority, 24 year old and under age group, within Manaia PHO boundaries. This project was co-ordinated by Manaia Health’s Nursing Integration Leader and was externally evaluated by Auckland University’s School of Population Health.

 The project consisted of three key components:

Services to Improve Access

A key priority for implementation of the Primary Health Care Strategy is to reduce barriers for the groups with the greatest need through additional services to improve health and improving access to existing first-contact services. The Strategy also identifies the need for encouraging developments that emphasise multi-disciplinary approaches to services and decision-making, including the co-ordination of services with secondary care, public health and other community-based services.

Immunisation

Several immunisation programs, involving children and adults are currently in progress in Whangarei. The purpose of vaccination is to provide protection against potentially serious vaccine preventable diseases and these groups are considered to be at increased risk of developing complications from these diseases, some of which may have long term consequences.
