Medicolegal and Ethics STD screening; Should we screen partners!

A guy has multiple girlfriends, he had sex with girl A and B with a condom, and without condom with girl C ... Now he has syphilis, who do we screen guys?

in other words, a guy is diagnosed with STD; should the partner that had sex with him WITHOUT protection be screened??!?!?

Condom failure rate can be around 1%.

Need to inform all three and proceed with testing if they are in agreement.

Just to be clear--this "condom failure rate" is not in reference to contraceptive effectiveness. In terms of contraception, condoms are 85% effective, meaning that in one year, 15/100 women using only (male) condoms for contraception will become pregnant.
