Gynecological pathologies are emerging as an important cause of morbidity and mortality in Africa. The pathologies concerned are mainly cervical cancers (related to HPV infections), female genital schistosomiasis and sexually transmitted infections (syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc.).
Diagnosis is usually based only on history and clinical examination. Good, robust and affordable diagnostic tools to identify these issues are missing.
Women who are most affected by these conditions live in rural areas where access to health facilities is difficult.
The strategy would be to be able to perform all of these tests the same day to have a quick and accurate diagnosis and to treat people in one visit and avoid losing the patients.
During this workshop we want to define the specifications that would define a "Test and treat in one day" strategy for the main gynecological pathologies.
