Strategizing is deemed necessary by many nations in order to ensure that they lower the rate of syphilis infection in their country's population. It is essential for nations to use the strategies in question because the disease we are dealing with here is one that is potentially fatal. A loss of life among the contributing citizens of a nation means the country would not be earning as much as it should have, and it will be a sorry loss indeed if the cause of this loss is something that is treatable in the first place. While it is true that not everyone dies because of this disease, the fact that they are suffering from it would mean their productivity would be seriously impaired and they wouldn't be able to contribute much. It is also worth remembering that syphilis is one of those highly infections diseases. It is one that can very easily spread through a population. The state should take it upon himself to ensure the infection rates remain low. Otherwise, it will have a situation in its hands, and it could even cause great embarrassment to the nation as a whole. Let us now look into the various steps and strategies that can be employed by nations to protect their population and ensure that the rate of syphilis infection would not be too much and kept under control.
The public has to be made aware about syphilis, and one way that the state could do this is to see to it that proper education about the disease is applied. If the people were only made aware about the disease, its implications, as well as its prevention and cure, they would not have been infected at all in the first place. It will do the state good to apply this strategy. They will be able to save a lot of money, achieve their goal and the cost of providing public education about this infection would be quite minimal in comparison.
Encouraging the practice of safe sex is also another effective strategy to ward of syphilis infection and keep it from occurring in greater numbers. The state could do this by providing the tools and accessories needed for the practice of safe sex. The accessories we are making reference to here are mainly condoms. We are not saying that the risks of syphilis infection will be completely eliminated when condoms are made use of. But they do reduce that risk substantially -- to a level where the probability of a person who practices safe sex getting infected with this particular disease is almost 'negligible.' On the price list, condoms cost relatively cheap. However, they can benefit everyone greatly and their risk-reduction capabilities could save the person - and the state - a lot of money in the long run.
You can also make sure that the rates of syphilis infection is low in a country's population by making it easier for the public to get medical attention and treatment and also make it within their price range. The rationale behind this strategy is easy to make sense of. Immediate treatment for the condition is advised since leaving it untreated means you are only exposing yourself - and everyone else - to greater risks. On a national scale, it would be advisable to help the people by making the treatments for syphilis treatment easily accessible and affordable.
