Clinical Practice: Now Available! Patient-focused Congenital Syphilis Information

The number of congenital syphilis (CS) cases in the United States increased 46 percent between 2012 and 2015. We need your help to bring that number down.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the March of Dimes have developed CS-related educational materials—including an infographic and webpages in both English and Spanish—for providers to share with patients and clients. Links to these resources can be found below. Visit the CDC website for a fact sheet on congenital syphilis.
