Treponema pallidumSyphilis bacterium, the bacterium responsible for the unsafe sexually transmitted infection syphilis.
In December 2017, PHE created a sexual health campaign, called Protect Against STIs, that urged young adults to practice safe sex and use condoms.
Speaking today (Tues) Debbie Laycock, from sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust, said: "Today's stats confirm the number of STIs diagnosed in England remains worryingly high against a backdrop of damaging cuts to sexual health services".
Many suggest that the current outbreak of STIs can be traced to budget cuts on health services.
The number of confirmed cases of gonorrhoea and syphilis in England in 2017 rose by 22% and 20%, respectively, according to data released by Public Health England (PHE).
There was a 22 percent rise in cases of gonorrhoea in 2017 compared to 2016 (from 36,577 in 2016 to 44,676 in 2017) and a strain of super gonorrhoea which can not be treated by antibiotics has made its way into the stats.
"Syphilis shows the highest concentration in the Salem area, probably a combination of age ranges and population density; syphilis is typically seen in the 30-50 year range", she explained. In March 2018 for example a man was admitted with gonorrhoea that was highly resistant to the two types of antibiotics that this bacteria is most sensitive to.
Between 2016 and 2017 there was an 8% fall in the number of chlamydia tests, continuing the 2016 trend.
She added: "Government must reverse cuts to councils' public health grants because we can not tackle this by stretching services even thinner".
Testing in clinics has fallen by 61% since 2015, which experts say may indicate a squeeze on resources.
It recommended that local authorities need to enable young women to be tested for chlamydia when they access contraceptive services, and stressed the importance of "statutory, high-quality" relationship and sex education in secondary schools.
Dr. Hughes said the best defense anyone has against these diseases is the consistent and correct use of condoms, especially with casual partners.
Hughes also stated that STI's can cause a serious health problem for those who are infected as it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and danger to unborn babies.
