Rapid Syphilis Test Toolkit: A Guide to Planning, Management, and Implementation

The Rapid Syphilis Test Toolkit provides a framework and series of tools for the introduction of rapid syphilis tests into country programmes. It was developed at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine for a project to determine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of different strategies for the introduction of rapid syphilis tests in seven countries.

The toolkit is based on the experience of the seven countries and is intended to provide useful guidance to countries on the planning, management and implementation of programmes for screening prenatal and high risk populations for syphilis with the new rapid tests; however, it's application extends beyond syphilis and is a valuable tool for the introduction of any rapid test.
