Obstetric Fistula
PDF File Size: 372 KB | Download   
Obstetric fistula, one of the most serious injuries of childbearing, is a hole between the vagina and the rectum or bladder caused by prolonged obstructed labour in the absence of timely and adequate medical care. The woman is left with chronic incontinence of urine or feces or both and in most cases a
stillborn baby. The constant leaking urine, feces or both, is humiliating, often isolating the women with fistula from family, friends and neighbors. If left untreated, fistula can lead to chronic medical problems.

UNFPA is supporting the capacity building of service providers through various workshops, training and hands on practicum through national and international experts. In partnership with JPHIEGO, UNFPA has supported the development of an on-the-job competency-based surgical training manual on obstetric fistula, adapted from the FIGO/UNFPA Obstetric Fistula Manual. The BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences, a teaching university in eastern Nepal, has been developed as an obstetric fistula training site by the National Health Training Center with UNFPA support.
