Sexually Transmitted Infections in New Zealand: Supplementary Annual Surveillance Report 2020

This report summarises additional epidemiology of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) for 2020 not shown on the dashboard, with findings from 2016 to 2019 included for comparison and context. The report presents findings from clinical notifications for syphilis and gonorrhoea, laboratory surveillance data for perinatal gonorrhoea and chlamydia infections, and additional clinical details for syphilis and gonorrhoea. For other key trends in syphilis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia please refer to the annual dashboard 

The report demonstrates that as seen in 2017–2019, rates of gonorrhoea, chlamydia and syphilis continue to be higher among Māori and Pacific peoples than in those of European/other ethnicity. Marked inequities were found in rates of infectious syphilis for MSM compared to MSW. Of the clinical notifications for gonorrhoea, the largest group were likewise reported to be MSM. Young people continue to suffer higher rates of STIs.
