Prevalence of vaginal practices in Tete province Mozambique.

Dr Brigitte M. Bagnol

Despite high HIV prevalence rate and effort to understand sexuality, key aspects of sexual health remain poorly explored. Among these are a variety of products and practices used by women to modify their vaginas for hygienic, health, or sexual reasons. A household survey using a multi-stage cluster sample design covered 919 women to identify the type, motivations and prevalence of vaginal practices.
