The April 2013 online issue of Health Reports, released today, contains two articles.

The first article, "Prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis and herpes simplex virus type 2: Results from the 2009 to 2011 Canadian Health Measures Survey," is the first in Canada to report laboratory-confirmed prevalence estimates for chlamydia and herpes simplex virus type 2 using a nationally representative sample. The analysis is based on physical measures data collected as part of the 2009 to 2011 Canadian Health Measures Survey, an ongoing survey conducted by Statistics Canada in partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada and Health Canada.
