Countdown Nigeria Training Guide For The Case Management Of Women And Girls With Symptoms Of Female Genital Schistosomiasis (FGS)

31 May 2021

"Health workers often have limited awareness of Female Genital Schistosomiasis because it is not described in current medical textbooks or curricula in any of the countries where schistosomiasis is endemic, therefore health workers have not been able to offer the correct advice, treatment and support to women affected. This training guide will support you to learn more about FGS and how to care for patients who present with these symptoms. Whilst these tools will support care and management of the girl and women, they do not replace other guidance used within your facilities and should work alongside your existing practice as a health worker."
