Cautionary note:
The number of cases of STIs reported through the clinic-based surveillance system underestimates the true burden of disease in New Zealand because a substantial percentage of STIs are diagnosed by other health care providers, particularly primary health care practitioners.

It is also important to note that the denominator used for calculating clinic visit infection rates is the total number of clinic visits for any reason. This denominator includes all new and follow-up visits made by clinic attendees, whether for sexual or other health reasons.
