Syphilis in Women and Congenital Syphilis
Los Angeles County has recently seen an increase in the number of syphilis cases among women. These increases have also led to a dramatic increase of congenital syphilis.
Congenital syphilis is a preventable condition that results from untreated syphilis during pregnancy, with potentially severe consequences for the infected infants including stillbirth, neonatal death, and birth defects.
Healthcare providers play a critical role in addressing the syphilis epidemic by identifying and treating infected patients. Proper screening at the first prenatal visit, early in the third trimester, and at delivery is key. Click here for our syphilis in women action kit.

Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap during 3rd trimester to protect newborns from pertussis. Visit CPSP website or to learn more about what your office can do to prevent pertussis.
