Syphilis Postcard – Healthcare
Information Card, 2021
Rates of syphilis have dramatically increased in Saskatchewan in recent years. Women of reproductive age are of particular concern because of the risk for congenital syphilis (syphilis passed from mother to baby during pregnancy or delivery). This postcard highlights that syphilis can harm pregnancies and unborn babies, but it is preventable and curable. Therefore, it is important for healthcare providers to offer syphilis testing to patients in order to prevent harms caused by syphilis.
