Identifying Promising Practices for Congenital Syphilis Prevention Project

Aug 31, 2023

NACCHO is excited to share a recent report on the “Identifying Promising Practices for Congenital Syphilis Prevention” project. This project launched in 2020 and provided funding to local health departments (LHDs) across the country to implement and evaluate new interventions to address rising congenital syphilis cases. Specifically, this funding was designed to support the implementation and evaluation of interventions that focused on one or more of the following areas of congenital syphilis prevention:

• Improving support for pregnant people with syphilis

• Improving support for pregnant people without syphilis

• Improving support for individuals with syphilis who could become pregnant but who are not currently pregnant

Under this project, two cohorts were funded, and this included the first cohort during year 1 and the second cohort during year 2 of the project. As congenital syphilis cases continue to rise, additional interventions must be considered to address this issue. Check out the report to learn more about the project!

Also, feel free to add your congenital syphilis interventions/activities to NACCHO’s compendium so that other jurisdictions can learn about your efforts.
