Summary
We see how easy-to-use field tests are being employed to hold back the spread of syphilis in Kosovo and trachoma in Tanzania. Both infections are caused by the same bacteria. In Tanzania it’s also regarded as a disease of the poorest of the poor and a disease especially of women and children. In Kosovo, a post-conflict country attempting to rebuild its future, there is a great need for much more education about syphilis—they don’t really have any proper infection rate statistics.
