Iceland second for chlamydia in Europe

The rate of reported chlamydia cases in Iceland is almost three times higher than the European average and second only to Denmark, a new OECD report suggests.

The Health at a Glance: Europe 2016 report produced by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that there were 529.1 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 people reported in Iceland in 2014.

Only Denmark saw a higher rate in the same year (548.8), while the average for eighteen Member States of the European Union (EU) was 187.2.
