Management Of Obstetric Fistula For Health Care Providers – On-The-Job Training: Learner's Guide (March 2014)
PDF File Size: 3.92 MB | Download   
Many mothers needlessly die each year due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth. The maternal mortality ratio in the developing world ranges from 500 to 1,000 deaths per 100,000 live births. For each mother who dies, there are an estimated 16 to 30 women who suffer from other nonlethal complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Of these complications, obstetric fistula (OF) is the most tragic. Women with a fistula are often abandoned by their husbands and isolated from the rest of society; these women often live in shame and isolation. Moreover, as a result of ever-increasing conflicts, war, displacement, and domestic violence, many women and children are exposed to brutal attacks that result in a number of physical injuries, including a separate category of genital fistula known as traumatic fistula. Few doctors possess the necessary skills and knowledge to provide adequate care for fistula patients. There is a huge need for training across the globe, specifically for training of doctors who are practicing in low-resource settings. Given the current availability of doctors and services for fistula repair, it would take years to treat even the backlog, without considering the newly emerging cases. This curriculum is designed to fill this gap.
