The syphilis outbreak in Alberta

Description

The number of identified cases of syphilis increased significantly between 2000 and 2009, and has spread outside known high risk groups to the general population. The need to interrupt this outbreak is compounded by the occurrence of babies being born with congenital syphilis. After a brief presentation of statistics on the spread of syphilis during this 10-year period, the report goes on to discuss steps that can be taken by individuals, the health care system, and government to contain the outbreak.
