Rates of syphilis have significantly increased in Saskatchewan in the past several years, with areas of the province issuing syphilis alerts and outbreak notices. 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 poster highlights that syphilis can harm pregnancies and unborn babies, but it is curable. Therefore, it is important for pregnant women to be tested and treated if infected.
