AB - In 2011, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) commissioned a programme of work to improve knowledge about the impact of chlamydia and chlamydia control in Europe. The aim of this project was to critically review and update the scientific evidence on the epidemiology and natural history of chlamydia and the clinical and cost-effectiveness of screening, update information about chlamydia prevention and control activities in EU/EEA Member States, and review the impact of the 2009 ECDC chlamydia control guidance. This technical report describes the evaluation of the impact of the 2009 guidance document on policymaking in Member States and presents recommendations for a revised version of the guidance. It includes an overview of the responses collected during the 2012 survey on chlamydia control activities in EU/EEA Member States. Different user types – with regard to the guideline document – were identified and described in this report. In addition, a qualitative analysis of the discussions at the March 2014 meeting was conducted. The meeting had brought together experts from Member States who discussed their experiences with the guidance document.This report concludes with evidence-based recommendations for the revision of the 2009 guidance document.
