*Sarah Ezhil Kelna Edwin, Kirubakaran Arounassalame, Hariprasath Pandurangan
Background: Global interest in improving women’s health has mainly been confined to improving family planning and child survival interventions. Though maternal and child health care was included among eight basic components of primary health care, little attention has been given to the reproductive health of non-pregnant women. Interestingly, in developing countries such women are approached mainly for family planning programs, without attention on reproductive tract infections (RTls) common in these countries. Consequently, majority of upper RTI (PID) leads to serious consequences of developing infertility among unfortunate victims. Objectives: The present study aims at effectiveness of self-instructional module regarding reproductive tract disease among women. Methodology: This study was pre-experimental study conducted among women. A total of 60 samples were selected by using non-probability purposive sampling technique. Results: The data were collected by using structured knowledge questionnaire on knowledge regarding reproductive tract diseases. The mean post test score of knowledge (21.56) is higher than mean pretest score of knowledge (14.28) among women. Conclusion: The structured teaching programme was found to be effective in increasing the knowledge on reproductive tract disease. This indicates that self-instructional module is an effective strategy which can be used to increase the knowledge on reproductive tract disease among women.[Full Text Article]
