We aim to eliminate deaths and disease from congenital syphilis
Every year congenital syphilis causes 140,000 stillbirths and 60,000 newborn deaths - this is entirely preventable.
Syphilis testing rates of mothers in low- and middle-income countries are low, with only 54% of pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa tested, despite cost-effective tests and treatment.
We support countries to screen pregnant women with rapid Syphilis/HIV dual tests, and treat syphilis-positive women with penicillin.
Treatment is very effective - Treating a pregnant woman leads to:
97% reduced risk of passing syphilis on to newborns
82% reduced risk of stillbirth
82% reduced risk of newborn death
