The NASTAD Drug User Health Team, in partnership with AIDS United, NACCHO, NCSD, and the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board, has an upcoming webinar series exploring syphilis among communities of people who use drugs. Though preventable, detectable through screening, and treatable, cases of syphilis and congenital syphilis continue to rise across the U.S., with higher prevalence among marginalized people who use drugs. It is critical to address syphilis among people who use drugs to both support their wellness holistically and reverse the trajectory of this STI’s impact nationwide.
This webinar series consists of five monthly sessions where those working on STIs – specifically syphilis – and those working in harm reduction and drug user health will be brought together to learn from each other, share promising practices, and highlight effective cross-sector partnerships.
