Chlamydia test for all under-30s

Anybody younger than 30, regardless of gender, should be screened for chlamydia each year, according to epidemiologist Professor Jane Hocking, from the School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne, but currently only 12—13% are tested regularly.

About 70—80% of men and women who have chlamydia are asymptomatic, she said.
