Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of International Day to End Obstetric Fistula 

About 800 women die from pregnancy, or childbirth-related complications around the world every day. For every woman who dies of maternal related causes, it is estimated that at least 20 women experience maternal morbidity, one of the most severe forms of which is obstetric fistula.

Obstetric fistula is an abnormal opening between a woman’s genital tract and her urinary tract, or rectum caused by prolonged, obstructed labour without treatment.

Obstetric fistula can be prevented and, in most cases, treated. Patients with uncomplicated fistula can undergo a simple surgery that cost $600 per patient, including post-operative care and rehabilitation support.
