Podcast: Marcia Anderson - Exploring the determinants of syphilis in Indigenous women in Winnipeg

March 2019

Across Canada, syphilis continues to mostly affect men who have sex with men, but on the Prairies, rates are also high among heterosexual women. In this conversation, the second in a series for the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases in conjunction with the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health, we’ll hear from Dr. Marcia Anderson, a medical officer of health and medical lead for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. She’ll discuss the determinants of syphilis transmission for Indigenous women and what public health and primary care providers can do to slow or stop its progression. Dr. Anderson spoke with NCCID’s Jami Neufeld.
