Treatment regimens of STD patients in Cameroon : a need for intervention.
Background and Objectives
The management of patients with STDs is an important element in the fight against AIDS.
To define effective STD control strategies a survey was serried out to understand the attitudes of STD patients and the treatment regimens they follow.
The study was based on interviews with male patients with typical symptoms of urethritis leaving private pharmacies in Douala and Yaounde.
Each case was asked to answer a questionnaire comprising the origin of the therapeutic choice, the nature and cost of the treatment and any advice received.
