- Cochrane systematic review published by members of
- the Central America & Caribbean Spanish Branch of the Iberoamerican Cochrane Centre
Prophylactic oophorectomy alongside hysterectomy in premenopausal women is a common procedure. The decision to remove or conserve the ovaries is often based on the perceived risk for ovarian cancer and the need for additional gynaecological surgical interventions, and is weighed against the perceived risk of negative health effects caused by surgically induced menopause. The evidence needed to recommend either prophylactic bilateral oophorectomy or conservation of ovaries at the time of hysterectomy in premenopausal women is limited. This is an update of the original version of this systematic review published in 2008.

- MASCOT – Multilateral Association for Studying Health Inequalities and
- Enhancing North-South And South-South Cooperation
A project supported by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme. The MASCOT project gathers therefore 11 partners from 3 geographical areas (Europe, Latin America & Africa), an advisory board and additional relevant experts to answer this problematic. The MASCOT Consortium recognises the need of having better coordinating mechanisms for South-South and North-South collaboration aimed at enhancing regional and local infrastructure, capabilities and capacities of research for health, as well as stimulating knowledge transfer and exchange mechanisms between countries and within countries for shaping policies, programs and health actions intended to provide better health and health services. These actions have to be understood as a way to reduce inequalities as the end-result of the strengthened collaborative actions.
