Abstract
A good understanding of the transmission dynamics of disease is necessary to proffer solution(s) to syphilis problem. The aim of this research was to use mathematical modelling to understand the intricacies and different approaches to Syphilis screening on epidemic dynamics and the health of MSM. A non-linear mathematical model for the transmission dynamics of syphilis in an heterogeneous setting with complications is developed and analysed. The existence and uniqueness of the system of equations is examined. We use the concept of Lipchitz criteria to analyse the model.
