Why We Work in Sudan
Fistula Foundation is not currently working in Sudan.
Since independence, Sudan has been scarred by civil wars, political turmoil and a huge refugee crisis. Against such a backdrop, it is difficult for government, economy and healthcare infrastructure to function effectively. Such system failure is at the root of obstetric fistula.
Instability and a lack of basic services means women have less access to emergency obstetric care, resulting in a high rate of maternal mortality in the country and high risk of developing a fistula. Hospitals struggle to address the ever-growing backlog of untreated patients, let alone treat the new cases that occur each year.
