Original commercials

The two TV ads are built around the two stories featured in the campaign and are a key component of the Young, deadly, syphilis free campaign.
The first story focuses on getting tested for syphilis.

The second focuses on the potential risks of syphilis during pregnancy and again, promotes syphilis testing, with a young couple reflecting on the loss of their baby due to undiagnosed syphilis.

Radio snippets using the TV ad scripts are being broadcast on local radio.
