On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Obstetric Fistula, May 23, 2024, Afiya, L’Africaine, Afiya For Her and Go médical are launching a joint campaign to raise awareness and combat this devastating disease.

Obstetric fistula is a serious injury that occurs during prolonged and difficult childbirth, without access to adequate medical care. It causes leakage of urine and feces, leading to chronic health problems, social stigma and isolation.

In Africa, thousands of women suffer from obstetric fistulas each year. This campaign aims to break the silence around this disease and mobilize efforts for the prevention, treatment and reintegration of affected women.

Together, we can end obstetric fistula and build a better future for women and girls.
