Syphilis among gay, bisexual, two-spirit and other men who have sex with men: A resource for population-specific prevention

Sexually transmitted and blood borne infections continue to be a significant public health concern in Canada. Across Canada, infectious syphilis rates are on the rise with the majority of infections occurring among gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). This resource synthesizes evidence, assesses the effectiveness of behavioural interventions and provides promising practices and evidence-informed strategies for the prevention of syphilis among gay men and other MSM. It is intended to support public health professionals and community organizations in the development of evidence-informed strategies for the prevention of syphilis among this population.
