Rapid point of care test for detecting urogenital infection in nonpregnant women and men at reproductive age

To determine the diagnostic accuracy of rapid tests at point of care for detecting urogenital Chlamydia trachomatis infection in nonpregnant women and men at reproductive age, as verified with nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) as the reference standard.

To assess the accuracy of rapid POC testing according to specimen (urine, urethral, or endocervical), technology (solid-phase EIA or solid-phase optical immunoassay, or any other technology), complaints of the patient (symptomatic vs asymptomatic participants) and setting (low/middle-income vs high-income countries).

This is a protocol.
