Chlamydial infection prevalence

per 100,000 people, 1990–2017

Info Edit

Prevalence is defined as the number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time per 100,000 people. Chlamydia is a common STD that can infect both men and women. It can cause serious, permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system. This can make it difficult or impossible for her to get pregnant later on. Chlamydia can also cause a potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy that occurs outside the womb).
