ABSTRACT:
Background: Women are poorly informed about behaviours and conditions that influence reproductive morbidity, symptoms of morbidity, the fact that symptoms can be treated and where they can be treated. This is compounded by the "culture of silence" that surrounds women. Objective: To assess the knowledge, attitude and practice about the disease of women suffering from RTI/STIs Material and methods: A cross sectional house to house study was conducted. Data collection was done using preformed pretested questionnaire. One hundred and thirty three and ninety women suffering from RTI/STI from urban slums and rural area were included in the study. Results:In both urban and rural area, more than half of the participants were not aware about the cause of their symptoms. In urban area, half of the participants feel that RTI/STI is curable while only one forth of rural participants feel so. 45.8% women in urban and 60% women in rural area did not seek treatment at all.
