A new model for gonorrhea control in Canada: Surveillance, new way of selecting best therapeutics and maybe a vaccine?
Gonorrhea resistance surveillance is of utmost importance as it allows for rapid treatment guidelines adjustments. The advent of rapid testing tools can help best select antibiotic choice thus decreasing the selective pressure on a single antibiotic. Data emerging about vaccine giving protection against gonorrhea makes us think that we may have a new tool in a near future to help gonorrhea control. This webinar will be presented in English. This webinar will be recorded.
