Syphilis Cases On The Rise

Posted: Updated:
The spread of sexually transmitted diseases has become a growing problem in our state.

The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDH) tells us cases of syphilis are on the rise, and those increases in cases started in Sioux County in the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

"In North Dakota in 2013, we reported 26 cases of all stages of syphilis. So far this year, our numbers aren't final yet, but we've had 33 reported cases. It's only halfway through the year," says Lindsey VanderBusch of the NDDH.

The health department recommends that all sexually-active people, especially men who have sex with men, and those who have other STDs get tested for syphilis.
