CDC Releases ‘Call to Action’ to Reduce Syphilis
May 5, 2017
CDC’s Division of STD Prevention is calling on public and private sectors, as well as affected communities, to help reduce syphilis through research, prevention, and outreach.
Historically low syphilis rates are in the rearview mirror, and today, we face increasing syphilis rates across almost every demographic. Of utmost concern is the continued high rate among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men, as well as a sudden surge of congenital syphilis rates.
