Reducing Missed Opportunities: Pairing Sexually Transmitted Infection Screening with Syringe Exchange Services

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Copyright © 2016 American Sexually Transmitted Diseases Association All rights reserved. About 17.5% of sexually active injection drug users recruited from a syringe exchange in Camden, NJ (n = 120) screened positive for chlamydia/gonorrhea. Among these cases, 40% were detected via extragenital screening. This pilot demonstrates that colocating sexually transmitted infection control with syringe exchange leads to sexually transmitted infection case finding.
