Webinar from PHAC: Syphilis: Key Populations in Canada

Date: Thursday, February 4, 2021
Time: 10-11 AM Pacific time

Several key populations have been disproportionately affected during the syphilis epidemic in Canada in recent years. The Public Health Agency of Canada recently released an in-depth look at syphilis in Canada in the past decade in a report titled Syphilis in Canada: Technical report on epidemiological trends, determinants and interventions. This webinar will present an overview of a few key populations examined in the report, namely Indigenous people, gbMSM, pregnant women, people who use drugs, and people living with HIV. The aim of this webinar is to provide updated information to organizations interacting with these key populations on their respective background information, epidemiological trends, and interventions.
