Excerpt
Introduction The control of reproductive tract infections (RTIs), especially sexually transmitted infections (STIs), is an urgent health priority in many countries (1–4). Policy-makers should be able to set health sector priorities in accordance with the disease burden, the availability and estimated cost-effectiveness of technical solutions, and other variables (5). However, this is often difficult because of a paucity of epidemiological data and the absence of a functional surveillance system for such infections, other than infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A recent review (6) of cross-sectional studies of RTI prevalence in general population samples found only five surveys from south Asia, including the present one, which included laboratory results. One of these surveys considered only the prevalence of vaginal infections. Four studies in India relied entirely on clinical diagnosis to define the presence of infection, notwithstanding the lack of correlation between clinical and laboratory results (6). Global burden of disease calculations for these infections have been based on a restricted number of survey results from facility-based or conveniencebased samples. There were no studies from Bangladesh and only one population-based survey from India was available (7). We therefore conducted a population-based survey of RTI/STI prevalence in a rural area of Bangladesh to determine the risk factors for RTIs.
