"Whose fault is it that Bob caught syphilis?" Find out in CCS's forthcoming Annual Public Lecture 2019

An exciting event to pop in your diaries is on the horizon - the CCS Annual Public Lecture. This year's presentation is called 'Whose fault is it that Bob caught syphilis?' and is being delivered by the Director of the Melbourne Sexual Health CentreProfessor Christopher Fairley AO on Thursday 17 October 2019. RSVP here

Late one night in Melbourne, Bob got syphilis after having sex with a man with syphilis. Lots other men had sex with other men that night but didn’t contract syphilis.  Bob used a condom, but they don’t always protect against syphilis. So, ‘whose fault was it’ that Bob got syphilis? The answer matters because it leads to a solution to an important problem. With syphilis cases in Melbourne on the rise, we desperately need a solution.
