gonorrhea and trichomoniasis were reduced by 2.4 and 2.5 per 10,000. But this was not significant reduction.
As of 2011, sixteen percent of STIs in Ulaanbaatar has been reported by private health facilities. But only nine hospitals out of 17 STI clinics have submitted their reports. In addition to this, reproductive health private hospitals, gynecological hospitals, and menâ€™s hospitals did not send reports. This limits the ability to see full picture of nationwide STI prevalence. Out of total reported STI cases 5,060 (37.6%) were male and 8,367 (62.3%) were female. STI incidence is highest among 20-29 (57%) age group. 67.1% of syphilis, 47% of gonorrhea and 76.8% of trichomonisis cases were found among women. In 2011, in addition to HIV and common STIs, the incidence of herpes, Candida, Chlamydia, infection of micoplasm, and infection caused by bacteria was 4,068 cases.
