Comparing cost effectiveness and sex equity of different intervention strategies within the English National Chlamydia Screening Programme found that increasing the effectiveness of partner notification was more cost effective and increased the diagnoses in women compared to increasing screening in men. The tool developed in this study can be used with local data to calculate cost effectiveness for chlamydia control programmes.
