On the Rise BC: Our syphilis awareness campaign

July 18, 2013 - Syphilis is on the rise in BC: according to the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), syphilis cases among men who have sex with men (MSM) in BC doubled in 2011 and 2012. Over half of these cases were HIV-positive.

In response to the growing rates of syphilis in BC, Positive Living BC presents the launch of our "On the Rise BC" campaign.

Please visit our website http://ontherisebc.ca and use; #ontherisebc for more information about what syphilis is, how it's transmitted, and how it's treated.

To speak with a public health nurse about syphilis and testing, please call the BCCDC at 604.707.5603 or check out http://smartsexresource.com/

Diagnosed with syphilis? There are resources and supports that help making partner notification easy. Have a look at http://inspot.org

And look out for our  four posters over Summer 2013!
