The Beautiful You MRKH Foundation, along with Global MRKH and Sisters for Love MRKH Foundation, is pleased to showcase some of the results from the recent survey you just completed! This project is part of a larger effort led by these three organizations to improve care for all affected by MRKH. We presented these results on April 21st, 2017 at an MRKH workshop at the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) Meeting in Chicago, IL, USA.
This was the first workshop to bring together affected individuals, parents, mental health professionals and clinicians who primarily treat people with MRKH to discuss gaps in care for MRKH. We focused our discussion on ways to improve diagnosis, treatment, access to qualified mental health care practitioners, and sexual health. The outcomes from this workshop will be used to identify potential comparative effectiveness research questions that can be addressed in future research studies. We look forward to sharing the complete results of this survey in the coming year, and stay tuned for additional ways YOU can help improve patient care for all affected by MRKH!
