we're on a mission to
end fistula for every woman
but there are serious problems that prevent progress
The global effort to end fistula is underfunded and lacking coordination. The $26m spent annually to treat fistula serves 16,000 women. This is well below the estimated annual incidence of 25,000. This means that every year, an additional 9,000 women are added to the global backlog of 1 million untreated cases.
