The field of disaster obstetrics and gynecology aims to rethink women's health and obstetrics and gynecology diseases from the perspective of disasters. The first purpose is to analyze and examine the effects of a catastrophic disaster on the health care system centered on the gynecological cancer screening system and on diseases peculiar to gynecology in a multifaceted and long-term manner. It is to promote the health of local women. The second purpose is to analyze the impact of a catastrophe on mothers and children and establish standards that can be used in the future.
The field of disaster obstetrics and gynecology also aims to consider how women, pregnant women, and medical personnel will respond in the event of a major disaster.
