The Gauteng Department of Health recently reported an increase of newly acquired STIs, in particular gonorrhoea and chlamydia. This spike in cases call for management guidelines and awareness programmes to be reviewed, reports Ufrieda Ho.

Earlier in February, the Gauteng Department of Health reported that the incidence of Male Urethritis Syndrome (MUS) in men aged 15 to 49 in the province had increased from 12% in 2020 to 15% in 2023. The department did not provide actual figures for the comparison, which is also somewhat complicated by the fact that in 2020 there were strict COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions in place.

The department’s information from 2023 showed that 167 109 males aged 15 to 49 visited health facilities across the province from April to December. Of these patients, 67 400 (40% of the 167 109) were treated for MUS.

The diagnosis of MUS is an indicator of newly acquired STIs, in particular gonorrhoea and chlamydia, which according to the Gauteng Department of Health are the most prevalent STIs in South Africa.

Chandiwana said diagnosis of MUS in men and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) among women, are made by assessing symptoms of pain, discomfort and genital discharge and sores. Conventionally, it’s treated with broad range antibiotics.

Since getting the snip a few years back I thought I was invincible. King of the World vibes.

LMFAO.

I have to remind myself to be "safe".
 
So mostly in Xhosa areas then?

I didn't know Joburg had any “Xhosa areas”. Everywhere is pretty mixed in my opinion.

I love the circumcision spin in the article. Lose the foreskin, and go wild!
 
When Panty said "hard at work" he really meant it ...inna panty
Damn you.. I was gonna drag Champys little idol through the mud.

Maybe Pantys little SS brigade need to be trained on how to keep it in their pants as well.
 
Great, first I can contact employees after hours and now this. I will have to get them tested regularly.

Did not read the article. By snip, I meant my vasectomy.
