The workshop looks at three key issues for women's health in the region:
- female genital schistosomiasis (a worm disease)
- cervical cancer and
- caesarean section
Furthermore, linking existing global health programs for HIV and AIDS and malaria with helminth control and vaccine programs will be a core issue to be explored during the workshop. The general objective of this workshop is to generate a blueprint which is adaptable and scalable for future global health activities within the sub-Saharan African region.
