Communicable Diseases Surveillance
The Australian Gonococcal Surveillance Programme includes 10 reference laboratories in all states and territories and in New Zealand. These laboratories report data on sensitivity to an agreed core group of antimicrobial agents on a quarterly basis. The antibiotics which are currently routinely surveyed are the penicillins, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin and spectinomycin, all of which are administered as single dose regimens.
An Explanation of the Australian Gonococcal Surveillance Programme surveillance system is published in Communicable Diseases Intelligence.
