Community Concerns About Reports

of Increased Resistance

to Treatment of Gonorrhea


Recently released information on increased resistance of gonorrhea to treatment and a number of treatment failures is causing a great deal of community concern.


Each year, an estimated 78 million people are infected with gonorrhea with 35.2 million of those people being in our region. Data from 77 countries is showing that antibiotic resistance is making gonorrhea much harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat.


The research and development pipeline for gonorrhea is relatively empty, with only 3 new candidate drugs in various stages of clinical development:. Condoms remain the prime and most effective method of preventing the transmission of most STI's; including gonorrhea


If you have concerns about gonorrhea  or any other STI you can contact
