The theme of this year International Day to End Obstetric Fistula Tracking Fistula Transforming Lives,reflects an important step forward in eradicating this preventable condition,which affects an estimated two million women and girls To treat fistula and provide women with follow-up medical care,we need to know more about how many women and girls are in need of services and also where they live.In most instances,stigma forces women living with the condition to remain hidden and isolates them from families and communities.By systematically registering and tracking each woman and girl who has or had an obstetric fistula,we can make enormous strides in improving their well being and increasing the chances of developing countries.Obstetric fistula highlights persistent global inequalities in access to health care and basic human rights.Most women who develop fistula,a hole in the birth canal usually caused by prolonged,obstructed labor,remain untreated for their entire lives,and the condition can easily recur in women and girls whose fistula has been surgically treated but who receive little or no medical followup and then become pregnant again.T obstetric fistula and address the circumstances that perpetuate it,including poverty,lack of access to health care,child marriage and early childbearing.We have the resources and know-how. What we need now is the political will to elevate the status of women and girls rectify inequalities and protect the human rights of every woman and girl so that fistula may never again undermine a person’s health,well being,dignity and ability to participate in and contribute to their communities.
