DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The majority of fistula cases are in Sub-Saharan Africa, but the problem exists in most regions of the developing world. [...] it is clearly linked to poverty and the failure to recognize women's right to health. The 2005-2015 National Strategy against Fistula, launched by the Ministry of Public Health, aims to: * Raise public awareness of the existence of fistula, including prevention and treatment options; * Train health care providers to treat fistula, promote family planning, and assist with reintegrating victims of fistula back into society; * Promote income-generating activities for survivors of fistula; * Raise awareness among fistula survivors about prevention for future pregnancies, and; * Involve women's groups and civil society in awareness campaigns and in the identification of victims so that they can be referred for treatment.
