Hi! I'm here to teach you about a disease called syphilis
00:08
The cause of syphilis is a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. It is transmitted from person to person by direct contact with a syphilitic sore, also known as a chancre.
00:21
Don't worry! If you do get syphilis, an injection of Benzathine penicillin G should do the trick!
00:32
To avoid transmission, you should abstain from sexual contact with a partner who has been tested and is known to be infected. Remember, the only way to contract syphilis is by direct contact with a syphilitic sore.
00:46
Syphilis is not associated with poverty or affluence, ANYONE can get it!
00:53
Africa is affected the most with over 1.8 million cases.
00:59
Unfortunately, syphilis is re-emerging and cases are rapidly increasing around the world.
01:15
Hopefully, you learned something new about syphilis. But more importantly, you learned how to avoid it!
