Tuberculosis remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In 2011, there were 8.7 million new cases and 1.4 million deaths from the disease, with >95% of these deaths taking place in low- and middle-income countries .
We investigated how young adults aged 18-29 years would like to be notified of chlamydia screening test results, and, when they test positive, their willingness and preferred mechanism for informing their partners.
BACKGROUND: Partner notification is accepted as a vital component in the control of chlamydia. However, in reality, many sexual partners of individuals diagnosed with chlamydia are never informed of their risk.
This study evaluated Let Them Know (http://www.letthemknow.org.au), an online partner notification website offering e-mail and text message notification services to individuals diagnosed with chlamydia.
