Obstetrics and Gynaecology (East Africa)
This study examines perceptions of infertility causes, treatment-seeking behaviour and factors associated with seeking medical care in an urban infertile population in Rwanda, as well as the response of health providers. METHODS
Between November 2007 and May 2009 a hospital based survey was conducted among 312 women and 254 male partners in an infertile relationship.
Health authorities should invest in improving information, education and counselling on issues pertaining to causes and treatments of infertility, and in drawing up guidelines for the management of infertility at all levels of health care.
