About the Collection

BMC Women's Health is calling for submissions to our Collection on Infection and inflammation in women's health.

Infection and inflammation of the reproductive tract in women can have serious consequences including infertility and chronic pain.  Despite these potential negative outcomes for a significant portion of the world’s population, infection and inflammation in women’s health is an under-researched field.

To address this gap, BMC Women’s Health is launching a new Collection, ‘Infection and inflammation in women’s health,’ to bring together research about diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted infections, and chronic inflammation.  The Collection welcomes quantitative and qualitative research from around the globe and across the full spectrum of the women’s health field.
