Extract

To the Editor: The incidence of syphilis in Singapore fell dramatically from 1978 to 1996. Unfortunately, there appeared to be a resurgence in the mid-1990s and early 2000s. According to a report by the Communicable Diseases Surveillance in Singapore, 2010, this trend has subsequently shown significant decline. The incidence rate of syphilis was 16 per 100,000 population in 2010, which was a 27.3% decrease from 22 per 100,000 population in 2009.
