Impact of a labour disruption affecting local public health on the incidence of chlamydia infections in Toronto

This paper reports on the impact of the 2009 City of Toronto labour disruption on sexually transmitting infections (STI). It examines the association between the suspension of core STI public health services and the incidence of reported chlamydia. This unique study examines the impact of a sudden reduction in the availability of sexual health services on the incidence of reported cases of chlamydia.
