Uganda Village Project (UVP) works with marginalized populations in Iganga on issues related to health and sustainable development. One of their main projects is a ‘Fistula Ambassador’ program that was launched in 2014. Through this program, fistula survivors are identified and trained to become ambassadors in their communities – they raise awareness and identify and refer fistula patients for treatment. Funding from Fistula Foundation supports this program as well as the transportation and meal costs of fistula patients.
