Last month, at the 3rd International Conference for the Society of Obstetric Fistula Surgeons in Dakar, Senegal, 300 participants from more than 30 countries outlined some concrete ways to prevent and treat obstetric fistula and assist women who have a fistula regain their health and rebuild their lives. The recommendations included:
The Mali Fistula Care Project sponsored four attendees, including the IntraHealth project coordinator, the fistula surgeon at Gao Hospital, the president of the Malian Midwives Association, and the National Fistula Point Person at the Ministry of Health. The Malian participants were encouraged that many of these recommendations have already been incorporated into the Mali Ministry of Health’s National Obstetric Fistula Strategy.
The Mali Fistula Care Project is led by EngenderHealth and managed by IntraHealth International. It is funded by USAID.
