Introduction In many settings, control of sexually transmissible infections (STIs) is compromised by lack of laboratory infrastructure, physical distance from laboratories and loss to follow up of patients. Point-of-care (POC) tests have the potential to provide timely diagnosis, treatment and partner notification, and in turn reduce infection rates. In April 2013, we will implement the first cluster randomised trial of chlamydia and gonorrhoea POC testing in remote Aboriginal communities where STIs are endemic.
