There are three primary areas of concern for women after a diagnosis of chlamydia which need to be examined in the proposed screening programme.

Support services should be available because notification of partner can cause anxiety. Uncertainty about future reproductive morbidity may be inevitable; staff providing screening will require guidance in providing advice under such conditions.
