The forecast of the Brazilian Federal Government is that new cases of  siphilis vertical transmission from mother to child in 2016 should exceed 22 000….Recife has the bitter title of 2nd in the ranking of state capitals, with 18.2 cases/1000 syphilis vertical transmission.

Syphilis, which also causes fetal malformations including microcephaly, is still a cause of fetal and neonatal deaths and miscarriages….Between 2013 and 2015, Brazil had a national penicillin shortage.

7-28-14      According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one out of six people in the United States aged 14 to 49 have genital herpes caused by the HSV-2 infection (the herpes simplex virus often responsible for genital herpes).  The overall genital herpes statistic is probably higher, the CDC stated, since many people are also contracting genital herpes through oral sex caused by HSV-1 (the kind of herpes usually responsible for cold sores).  Taking that into account, genital herpes statistics are usually quoted at closer to 25 percent for women and 10 percent for men, but most of these people don’t even know they have it.        http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/07/the-overblown-stigma-of-genital-herpes/374757/

The estimated total number of people aged 15–49 years who were living with herpes HSV-2 worldwide in 2003 is 536 million (Table 1), roughly 16% of the world’s population in this age range.  The prevalence is assumed to increase with age since infection is lifelong, and this is observed in the data.   More women than men were infected, with an estimated 315 million infected women compared to 221 million infected men. …

The lowest prevalence was in western Europe, where prevalence reached a maximum of around 18% among women and 13% among men. The highest prevalence was in sub-Saharan Africa, where prevalence reached a maximum of 70% among women and around 55% among men.  Subregional analysis for sub-Saharan Africa reveals that the prevalence was high in eastern, middle and southern Africa, and lower in western Africa (data not shown).        http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/86/10/07-046128/en/

 More than 3.7 billion people under the age of 50 – or 67% of the population – are infected with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), according to WHO’s first global estimates of HSV-1 infection published today in the journal PLOS ONE.  http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2015/herpes/en/
