Fistula Foundation was proud to participate in and cosponsor the 2014 International Society of Obstetric Fistula Surgeons Conference in Kampala, Uganda. The weeklong conference was an opportunity to bring together stake – holders from all over the world to assess progress in the fight against fistula, recent innovations, and strategies for moving forward. Attendees gave presentations on a diverse set of topics ranging from research findings to new surgical techniques to outreach and community education campaigns.
Kenya Program Director Lindsey Pollaczek also attended, as did many of our global partners, such as TERREWODE, CCBRTanzania and CURE International Hospital-Kabul. The next conference will be held in 2016 in Nigeria.
