What is Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)?

Any infection in the urinary tract - be it the kidney, urinary bladder or the urethra, is known as Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). UTI is one of the most common bacterial infections; its estimated incidence is approximately 150 million per year globally. UTI is more common among women than in men.

Women in the age group of 16 – 35 years are usually affected. Women after menopause are also at risk of both primary and recurring UTI. Approximately, 40% of women and 12% of men in India suffer from UTI during their lifetime.
