This volume reviews both those reproductive tract infections whose impact on pregnancy are clear and that are relatively well studied, as well as those reported more recently and whose adverse impacts, such as low birth weight and prematurity, are less clear. It reviews the existing knowledge about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and adverse pregnancy outcomes, identifies gaps in our knowledge, points out potential areas for research, and discusses the implications for public health programs.

Reviews for Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Adverse Outcomes of Pregnancy
A rather remarkable foray into differing cultures, marked by the dictionary''s ''cultural notes'' and reminders that the same words used in different places, such as ''robot, '' ''mail slot'' and ''swing voter, '' have very different meanings.
