The Effects of Condom Distribution with Education on Chlamydia Rates in High Schools
In 1996 the Center for Disease Control reported that adolescents account for the largest proportion of Chlamydia cases. One method discussed by experts to control Chlamydia rates is education and condom distribution in high schools. This report analyzes a stochastic process and deterministic models to determine the effectiveness of condom distribution with education, in controlling the transmission of Chlamydia amongst high school students.
