Summary
Syphilis was thought to have been beaten by mass penicillin treatment in the 1950s and 1960s. Now it’s back, particularly among the rural populations of places like Haiti—which medical experts believe is where the disease started in the first place. The theory goes that Christopher Columbus’ crew brought the disease back to Europe. Now, special mobile testing units are being used to tackle the disease, and with great success.
