About MoCCA


This website was produced as part of the Management of Chlamydia Cases in Australia (MoCCA) Project. MoCCA is a five-year project funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (APP1150014) that seeks to address gaps in chlamydia management in Australian general practice. In particular, MoCCA focuses on improving testing for repeat infection within recommended timeframes, improving partner management, and increasing clinician confidence in diagnosing PID. The research team is based at the University of Melbourne.
