Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmissible infection, caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. It usually infects the genital area, but can also affect the throat, anus and eyes. Gonorrhoea affects both men and women.

Some strains, especially those overseas, are resistant to antibiotics. If a single strain is resistant to several different types of antibiotics, it is called a multi-drug-resistant strain and can be much harder to treat.

Information on multi-drug resistant gonorrhoea is available on the Gonorrhoea Health Alert web page.
