Women's reproductive tract infections and other gynaecological disorders are an enormous global health burden.

This significant book helps focus research in this important, neglected area. It is a vital tool for doctors, epidemiologists and public health professionals to formulate effective ways of evaluating the scale of this problem within the local community.

The book takes an international perspective and recognises that gathering gynaecological information in different societies requires a sensitive and multidisciplinary approach. This research highlights the social significance of these disorders for women's health and casts new light on effective medical and behavioural interventions.

  • Will help advance global investigation of gynaecological morbidity
  • Pulls together much international experience in community-based research
  • Establishes guidelines on issues and methods associated with reproductive tract infections and gynaecological morbidity.
