Along with the alarming number of people infected with sexually transmitted diseases, a training session was held in Propriá on Wednesday, followed by a debate on HIV, AIDS and syphilis in Sergipe.

During the meeting, held at the Auditorium of the University of Tiradentes, were attended by doctors, experts and health professionals. The number of people affected by the disease was discovered.

According to a report based on scientific research on mapping cases in the state of Sergipe in Neopolis, 30 cases of HIV and three cases of syphilis have been detected in children.

The city with the largest number of cases is Propriá, with 137 people infected with HIV and 14 syphilis children. For Mayor Propriá, figures are alarming.

"With the possibility of a greater number of people with HIV, we have seen a hidden epidemic of syphilis in children, because syphilis does not show symptoms, and few people who have no condoms seek medical care," said Aelson Advertising.
