Community engagement on-site rapid test for chlamydia and gonorrhea among men who have sex with men: a pioneering study in Guangzhou, China.

History Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections are common among men in China's sex with men. The aim of this pilot study was to determine the possibility of running rapid nucleic acid tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea in MSM community-based companies. On-site laboratory swab samples were collected and tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea, and the test findings were published in about 1. 5 h. Positive cases received free treatment in about 1. 5 h. Only 19. 3% participants had previously undergone chlamydia and gonorrhea testing, and 68. 9% said they had heard of gonorrhea before going to the hospital, although 47. 4% had never heard of chlamydia. Conclusions This pilot study found that the chlamydia and gonorrhea infection rate among MSM is still high, despite the low test results.
