Évaluation des connaissances des sujets jeunes (15-30 ans) sur les chlamydias

Abstract : Introduction: Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) are the most frequent Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) in France. The infection’s consequences can be serious, especially for female fertility. Young people are the most affected, what do they know about this infection? Material and Method: this is a cross-sectional, observational quantitative descriptive study, using a self-administered questionnaire distributed to any patient aged 15 to 30 during a consultation with a general practitioner or in Family Practice Service of Île-de-France. Results: 31% of the people who answered the questionnaire never heard of Ct. The most important Ct’s knowledge bias is is the family circle or relatives, then the media and finally the school environment. 68% of patient indicated that they had never had a proposal for Ct screening by a doctor. Conclusion: the preoccupation about Ct, especially in young people, is a public health issue. Focus should be placed on general practitioners’ training on this subject. Indeed, they represent the first resort for patients to monitor their health.
