  • STDs cost the U.S. health care system $17 billion every year and cost individuals even more.

Florida's congenital syphilis case reports increased 82 percent from 99 to 180 cases between 2017 and 2021. Reported cases of accompanying adult syphilis have risen dramatically as well, from 8.954 cases in  2017, to 16,438 in 2021, an 83 percent increase. This increase is especially concerning for females of childbearing age which is up 63 percent. These trends have led to more adverse impacts among infants born to untreated mothers, including 72 syphilitic stillbirths and infant deaths between 2017 and 2021.
