Gambian reproductive health is cause for concern:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Gambia's first ever reproductive health survey has revealed a high incidence of health and blood disorders that explain the high childbirth mortality that characterises rural African communities. The UK Medical Research Council, which compiled the study, reports a "wide range of reproductive morbidity", affecting around 70% of the women of childbearing age. Conditions include cervical dysplasia, reproductive tract infections and anaemia. The women involved in the survey were also screened for sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.
