Sexually transmissible infections

Gonorrhoea cells


The HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexually Transmissible Infections in Australia Annual Surveillance Report analyses data on sexually transmissible infections (STIs), including chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, human papillomavirus (HPV) and donovanosis. Simple treatments are available for most of these sexually transmissible infections. However, if left untreated, chlamydia and gonorrhoea can cause pelvic inflammatory disease in females and infertility in both males and females, while untreated syphilis can cause serious long-term conditions including heart failure, dementia, blindness and brain damage.
