Socioeconomic factors and other sources of variation in the prevalence of genital chlamydia infections: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Abstract: BackgroundThe success of chlamydia screening programmes relies on their ability to effectively target those with greatest need. Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds may be at greater need for chlamydia screening, but existing evidence on the variation of prevalence with social position is inconclusive. We carried out a systematic review to examine variation in chlamydia prevalence in populations and possible sources of this variation.MethodsStudies were eligible if they reported chlamydia prevalence der… Show more

“…Однако есть несколь-ко исследований, показывающих отсутствие связи между хламидийной инфекцией и развитием поражений шейки матки. Таким образом, роль хламидийной инфекции как фак-тора риска цервикальных поражений по-прежнему остается спорной [31][32][33].…”

“…Los estudios internacionales y algunos nacionales, hasta ahora reportados, sugieren una prevalencia que depende del nivel socio-económico (más alta aparentemente en regiones donde predomina el estrato socio-económico más bajo) lo cual ha sido vinculado con una mayor ocurrencia de factores de riesgo predisponentes para esta infección 4,14,18 . El presente estudio tiene por objetivo determinar la prevalencia de infección por clamidias en población femenina adolescente y adulta joven usando un kit diagnóstico que incorpora RPC en tiempo real o cuantitativa.…”

“…En el mundo son pocos los países que mantienen un programa de vigilancia de ITS 4,11,18,40,[45][46][47] . Uno de ellos es E.U.A., quien a través del CDC mantiene un registro de reporte anual que permite conocer de las variaciones experimentadas en dicho indicadores y más importante aún, del desarrollo de resistencia a las terapias antimicrobianas existentes 9 .…”

“…This correlated well with the present study stating prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis infection is less educated group. In Joanna Crichton et al study [19] , which was a metanalysis for socioeconomic factors and other sources of variation in the prevalence of genital chlamydia infections, it was found that there is an association between lower educational opportunities/attainment and increased risk of Chlamydia infection and it also provides evidence of a consistent association between socioeconomic disadvantage and higher risk of Chlamydia infection. This was in concordance with the present study.…”
