Excerpt
Introduction Since the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo in 1994 and, more recently, the ICPD+5 Forum in The Hague, organizations and research groups have underlined the need for improved methods to monitor reproductive health in the community (1, 2). One potential approach is to refine interview-based methods to estimate the prevalence of reproductive illness; but, although much effort has been directed towards this technique, a recent review of validation studies shows that women’s self-reported morbidity does not provide valid estimates of professionally observed morbidity in clinical or laboratory settings (3). Even so, researchers consistently argue for greater value to be placed on women’s self-reporting of reproductive illness or their health state (4–6), as many reproductive conditions are not considered life-threatening but have a considerable impact on daily life. Rather than an estimate of morbidity, interview-based surveys may be better suited to measure health status and estimate the burden associated with reproductive illnesses and conditions. To measure health rather than morbidity requires an appropriate concept of reproductive health and relevant operational indicators, as outlined below.
