Abstract

Effective future control of female genital schistosomiasis (FGS) requires an integrated and multisectoral approach, bringing together HIV, sexual and reproductive health, and reproductive rights sectors. Within this, we now highlight an underappreciated but important connection between FGS and menstrual hygiene initiatives in Africa.
