Expected reduction in infectious syphilis cases following implementation of different intervention strategies. The proportion of cases averted was calculated relative to the expected number of cases in the base case scenario (no increase in frequency or coverage of screening). Proportion of cases averted is presented for both diagnosed cases and incident cases (reported and unreported), and is calculated using the mean value of 1000 realizations for each intervention scenario. Error bars represent 95% uncertainty bounds. Strategies requiring the same number of annual tests are indicated.
