12 Reproductive health care Croatian perspective Mario Kopljar, Joško Zekan

13 Public health impact of ST D Sexually transmitted diseases have a sigificant influence on the pupulation reproductive health Infertility 12% Healthcare burden Reductio of working abillities (hepatitis B, sick leave)

14 Incidence of STD in Croatia per Chlamydia Gonococcal infections Hepatitis B HIV HPV

15 Reduction of STD incidence HIV incidence under control –education, –promotion of anonymous testing, –legal purchase of sterile needles in pharmacies Growing problem is HPV

16 HPV infection represents a major health problem because of its relation to cervical cancer HPV Summit 1999: there is no cervical cancer without HPV infection Cervical cancer is a preventable disease

17 Cervical cancer – incidence Latin America / women Croatia 16.8 / women Israel, Finland3 -4 / women

18 SMOKING – LUNG CANCER: ODD RATIO =17 HPV INFECTION – CERVICAL CANCER: ODD RATIO =

19 High risk population Sexarche before the age of 17 Promisquity Early pregnancy High-risk HPV infection Low socioeconomical status Immunodeficient conditions Smoking Nutritional deficit Oral contraception High-risk partners Non-existance of national screening programme

20 Situation in Croatia 597 gyneacologists 142 pathologists 115 cytologists 112 cytoscreeners Opportunistic screening (OR 0.57): ~ PAP-smears/year Organized screening (OR 0.25): women (25-65 years)
