Vaginal microbiota that is dominated by lactobacillus is generally considered healthy and stable, while disturbances in this microbial balance are usually due to a depletion of lactobacilli and an overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria. In her research, Hanneke Borgdorff provides an overview of vaginal microbiome epidemiology, focusing on demographic, behavioural, clinical and proteomic correlates of microbiota composition in women in sub-Saharan Africa.
