Video for Clinicians: Fighting Syphilis Increase

Rates of syphilis continue to climb across many communities throughout the U.S., and even rates of congenital syphilis are once again surging.

Healthcare providers are uniquely positioned to stamp out these increases; however, those of us in public health can help to ensure that they’re aware of this dangerous trend and have the necessary prevention and treatment tools at their disposal. To aid in this effort, we’ve developed a new whiteboard video that highlights the growing syphilis burden, key testing recommendations for at-risk populations, and the three steps that healthcare providers can take to protect their patients.
