About This Project

Women with obstetric fistula experience chronic leaking urine, leading to stigma, isolation, and loss of income. (Wall, 2006) Repair is possible, but only 2% of the two million affected women ever access surgery, and 50-100,000 new cases occur each year. (UN, 2014) Women and girls are in dire need of a new solution to manage their injury. For this project, we will interview Ghanaian women with fistula to study stigma, coping, and acceptability of a non-surgical method for fistula management.
