Long Time No Syphilis Appeal Donate Fundraise Did you know that syphilis is on the increase? The number of people in the UK diagnosed with syphilis has more than doubled since 2012.Many of us haven’t heard about syphilis, or know little about it. We think of it as something that was common in the 1970s and has gone away. But syphilis is back – and it’s back in a big way.If it’s left untreated, syphilis can have serious implications on our health. In its later stages, it can cause serious and potentially life-threatening problems.As public health budgets get cut, lots of people who need to know about syphilis (and get tested or treated for it) don’t know about how it is prevented, treated or cured.It’s time for that to change. HIV Scotland is working with PrEPster, The Love Tank & Yorkshire Mesmac as part of Long Time No Syphilis. Your donation will help us send more t-shirts, posters and beer mats across Scotland. By reaching more people with the campaign, we can educate people about how syphilis is prevented, treated or cured.
