Abstract

<p>We examined whether the implementation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommended screening of Chlamydia trachomatis/Neisseria gonorrhoeae with proactive follow-up among high-risk youth recruited from community and clinic settings reduced future C. trachomatis/N. gonorrhoeae diagnoses. After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendations demonstrated a 41% decline in sexually transmitted infections; 3 tests in 1 year resulted in a 10% decline.</p>
