Description:
This is a report on the work of the multidisciplinary Gonorrhoea Control Group which was convened in Dublin in December 2012. The Group investigated the significant increase in the numbers of notifications of gonorrhoea in the eastern part of Ireland and instituted appropriate and effective control measures, resulting in a halt in the rise in notifications of gonorrhoea. The investigation revealed two groups at most risk of gonorrhoea infection: men who have sex with men and young heterosexuals. A multidisciplinary and partnership approach was used to alert the health system and to provide sexual health information to the groups at most risk of infection. A particular highlight was the use of social media in targeting messages to young people.
