The WHO (World Health Organization) estimated over ten years ago that over 1 million people each day became infected with a sexually transmitted infection - most experts believe the figure is considerably higher today. The majority of these new infections occur in young adults aged up to 25 years, while approximately one third occur among individuals younger than 20 years of age. Globally, girls aged 14 to 19 are almost twice as susceptible to STIs than boys of the same age.
Chlamydia, also known as chamydial infection, is an STI caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (C. trachomatis), a bacterium that infects humans exclusively. Chlamydia is the most common infectious cause of genital and eye diseases globally - it is also the leading bacterial STI. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), 6.8% of girls aged 14 to 19 years have Chlamydia today. Women with Chlamydia do not usually have signs or symptoms, if there are any, they are usually non-specific.
