Reproductive Tract Infections

Reproductive tract infections (RTis) have become a silent epidemic that is devastating women's lives. Each year, thousands of women die needlessly from the consequences of these infections, including cervical cancer, ectopic pregnancy, acute and chronic infections of the uterus and the fallopian tubes, and puerperal infections. For many women, this happens because they receive medical attention too late, if at all. The terrible irony of this tragedy is that early diagnosis of and treatment for many RTis do not require high-technology health care. For the hundreds of millions of women with chronic RTis acquired from their sexual partners, life can become a living hell. Infection is a major cause of infertility, and it leads to scorn and rejection in many countries. These women may experience constant pain, have festering lesions of the genital tract, be at enhanced risk of second ary diseases, and endure social ostracism. The problems associated with RT!s have grown even greater in the past decade with the emergence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and AIDS. Preexisting sexually transmitted disease, particularly when associated with genital tract ulcers, raises women's vulnerability to the transmission of HIV 3-5 fold.

Investigating Reproductive Tract Infections and Other Gynaecological Disorders

Reproductive tract infections and other gynaecological disorders among women represent an enormous global health burden. This significant book will help focus research on this important though neglected area. The primary aims of the book are to provide an overview of reproductive tract infections and other gynaecological disorders, to highlight the conceptual and methodological challenges associated with undertaking research on this subject, and to serve as a reference for future research in this area. The book focuses on developing country settings, and recognizes that gathering this sort of information requires a multidisciplinary and culturally sensitive approach. Findings from the research described in this book will undoubtedly assist physicians, social scientists, epidemiologists and public health practitioners in evaluating the magnitude of this problem within the community at large and in identifying potentially effective medical and behavioural interventions to address this problem.

Rti Sti Among Reproductive Age Group Women in Urban Slums

The control of reproductive tract infections (RTIs), especially sexually transmitted infections (STIs), is an urgent health priority in many countries.

Rti Sti Among Reproductive Age Group Women in Urban Slums

The control of reproductive tract infections (RTIs), especially sexually transmitted infections (STIs), is an urgent health priority in many countries. The annual incidence of RTI/STI in India is estimated at 5% or approximately 40 million new infections occurring every year.3 National family Health Survey-2 has also reported that 39.2% women in India have one or more reproductive infections. In India awareness of reproductive and sexual health is generally low among women and their access to health care is severely restricted. RTI/STI is an important morbidity among women of reproductive age group. Prevalence is significantly more after the age of 25 years, in married women and with H/O abortion. Vaginal discharge & lower abdominal pain being the most common presentation, all contacts of the identified risk group women with the health care facility may be utilized for detection of RTI/STI through syndromic approach.

Reproductive Health in Developing Countries

Reproductive Health in Developing Countries

Sexually transmitted diseases, unintended pregnancies, infertility, and other reproductive problems are a growing concern around the world, especially in developing countries. Reproductive Health in Developing Countries describes the magnitude of these problems and what is known about the effectiveness of interventions in the following areas: Infection-free sex. Immediate priorities for combating sexually transmitted and reproductive tract diseases are identified. Intended pregnancies and births. The panel reports on the state of family planning and ways to provide services. Healthy pregnancy and delivery. The book explores the myths and substantive socio-economic problems that underlie maternal deaths. Healthy sexuality. Such issues as sexual violence and the practice of female genital mutilation are discussed in terms of the cultural contexts in which they occur. Addressing the design and delivery of reproductive health services, this volume presents lessons learned from past programs and offers principles for deciding how to spend limited available funds. Reproductive Health in Developing Countries will be of special interest to policymakers, health care professionals, and researchers working on reproductive issues in the developing world.

Fundamentals of Sexually Transmitted Infections

This textbook includes the recent progresses and scientific knowledge from the leading experts in different approaches to control, diagnosis, and management depending on resources and facilities available. This book has been written by our colleagues from all over the world. This book is divided into six sections. Each section supplies particularly sexually transmitted infections, diagnostics, microorganism types, pathogenesis, and treatment options. Essential points in publishing this book are to improve our knowledge about sexually transmitted infections and new treatment modalities. One chapter of the book is devoted to viral infections and their treatment. We think that this textbook will serve as a comprehensive guide to many physicians dealing with sexually transmitted infections in their clinical practice. It will hopefully be a precious source for dermatologists, educators, other physicians, and medical students.

Gender Sexuality and Reproductive Health in Thailand

The relevance of issues of gender and sexuality in relation to reproductive health in Thailand is discussed here.

Gender  Sexuality  and Reproductive Health in Thailand

The relevance of issues of gender and sexuality in relation to reproductive health in Thailand is discussed here. The topics of this monograph were categorized according to a list formulated by WHO. These categories are family planning, maternal/child health and safe motherhood, infertility, and abortion/complications of abortions. The document also provides information on sexually transmitted diseases/reproductive tract infections, sex education, reproductive tract malignancy, adolescent health, menopause, and the elderly. These categories fall naturally under three headings: family planning, maternal/child health, and the consequences of unwanted pregnancies. In the latter stage of the project, consultative meetings were held in Bangkok, Hat Yai, Khon Kaen and Chiang Mai to obtain valuable views from other experts. The results were discussed at a seminar held in Bangkok on November 21-22, 1998. This seminar saw the adoption of a life cycle perspective in which men and women act out their gender roles--including those associated with sexuality--during adolescence and the subsequent stages of their adult lives. Because reproductive health is a coherent entity, policy and programs for all aspects of reproductive health should be integrated. This project concludes that research, advocacy and training concerning the gender-related aspects of interactions between providers and clients in the delivery of reproductive health services is needed. Also, a comprehensive information, education and communication program is called for so that services can be extended to include men in supportive roles wherever possible.

Research on Reproductive Health at WHO

Tackling the consequences associated with reproductive health problems is a priority in developing countries, in particular with its impact on social and economic development. The UNDP/UNFPA/WHO/World Bank Special Programme of Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP) seeks to do this, by supporting basic, clinical, epidemiological social science and operations research and conducting systematic reviews. This report presents an overview of the HRP's work over the biennium 2002-2003. Divided into six chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of reproductive health, such as: family planning; making pregnancy safer; reproductive tract infections; preventing unsafe abortion; adolescent sexual and reproductive health and co-operating with countries, the report makes a case for more substantial funding to further the work of the programme.
