One of the best ways of educating about syphilis and sexual health is through our friends. So, let your friends know about syphilis and how to test for it!
If you’ve recently been diagnosed with syphilis then you could have passed it on to those you’ve had sex with. It could be that the person you got syphilis from doesn’t know they have it.

It’s not always easy to tell sexual partners that they could have an STI - but doing so could prevent them from getting seriously unwell or passing syphilis on to other people.

If you don’t want to contact sexual partners yourself, your sexual health clinic will be able to do so for you. This is called partner notification and can be done without the clinic giving your partners your name.
