Obstetric fistula is a childbirth injury that destroys a woman’s life. When a woman’s labor is obstructed and she cannot access emergency care such as a C-section, a fistula can develop. It leaves a woman incontinent and too often shunned by her community. At least one million women in Africa and Asia suffer needlessly from untreated fistula.
Fistula Foundation is dedicated to treating women suffering from obstetric fistula through life-transforming surgery. Fistula Foundation provides more fistula repair surgeries than any other organization in the world. We believe that no woman should endure a life of misery and isolation simply for trying to bring a child into the world.
