Endometriosis silently affecting lives of women – Let’s talk about it
The George Institute for Global Health India organised a panel discussion on “Endometriosis silently affecting lives of women – Let’s talk about it”. The discussion gave insights upon an opportunity to understand endometriosis and its impact on women’s health, existing evidence gaps, and current challenges to ensure early screening and treatment for improving quality of life and overall well-being of women suffering from endometriosis.
Often known as a missed disease endometriosis remains a neglected gynaecological condition of women due to delay in diagnosis and treatment from the onset of the symptoms. Lack of awareness among women and healthcare providers causes this lengthy delay. The panel highlighted the need for initiating discourses and raising awareness about endometriosis for early diagnosis and treatment, and to support and empower women affected by it.
