Obstetric fistula is a debilitating condition in which women are injured during several days of obstructed labor and often give birth to stillborn babies. They are left with long-term health problems, including chronic incontinence. Most suffer in pain and humiliation and many are stigmatized by their families and communities. While a delivery by caesarian section prevents obstetric fistula, in sub-Saharan Africa such medical procedures and prenatal care are often out of reach for rural women. Many women live with obstetric fistula for many years before seeking treatment at Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
