We agree with David Mabey and Rosanna Peeling1 that the Review by Sarah Hawkes and colleagues2 is a “timely reminder that syphilis has not disappeared, and remains a major, although entirely preventable, cause of death in newborn babies”. This reminder echoes what we wrote 10 years ago3 and highlights the absence of progress made in the intervening years. In 2007, WHO launched its global initiative to eliminate congenital syphilis. 5 years later, evidently, little has changed.
