We expanded our maternal syphilis work into Cameroon in 2023. Through our technical assistance, we’re supporting the Cameroonian government to implement a dual HIV/syphilis test in prenatal care beginning in 2024. Our goal is to increase syphilis screening and treatment rates for pregnant women across the country, reducing the risks of disability and death for newborns.
Our goal is to help the government reach at least 7.7 million pregnant women with syphilis testing and at least 280,000 infected women with treatment, over the next decade.
We support implementation of maternal syphilis screening and treatment in collaboration with Cameroon's Ministry of Public Health and Clinton Health Access Initiative.
