USAID-Supported Study Helping Inform U.S. Support Of Fistula Care Projects

USAID’s “IMPACTblog”: The Hidden Costs of Fistula Repair Surgery
Bianca Devoto, an intern in USAID’s Office of Population & Reproductive Health supporting USAID’s management team for the Fistula Care Plus Project, discusses the costs associated with fistula repair surgery in Uganda. She cites a “recently published USAID-supported research study [that] sought to better understand the barriers women face when seeking fistula care,” and concludes, “Since 2004, more than 50,000 fistula repair surgeries have been made possible all over the world through Fistula Care Plus Project and other USAID-supported fistula care projects” (9/7).
