This STD Awareness Month, join CDC in tackling the dangerous return of syphilis.
Once nearing elimination, national data find that syphilis is now thriving. Reported cases and rates for primary and secondary syphilis are at a 20-year high. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men face continuously high and rising rates of the disease. Rates are also on the rise among women, multiple age groups, all regions, and among almost every race/ethnicity.
Syphilis's resurgence highlights its ability to affect many communities at anytime and anywhere. We cannot accept this as the new normal, and together, we can and must reverse these increases. Learn more by visiting the STD Awareness Month website.
CDC's Division of STD Prevention helps people to be safer and healthier by preventing STDs and their complications.
