  1. Quality of STD care in an urban zambian setting : the providers'perspective.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this paper is to analyse obstacles to optimal STD care in an urban setting in Zambia.

    Eighty-two health professionals answered a questionnaire with closed and open-ended questions.

    More than 50% were not satisfied with their working conditions, due to heavy workload, lack of equipment/drugs, poor salary, and lack of continuing education.

    Negative opinions about STD patients were common.

    Treatment and preventive activities were considered important but most respondents found patient compliance poor-especially for partner notification.

    To improve the quality of STD care, training in STD management should be combined with improved working conditions.
