54 Surgeons Trained Through FIGO Partnership


Trained fistula surgeons are in short supply, which means capacity to treat the growing backlog of fistula patients is limited. To meet this need, we support a comprehensive fistula surgeon training program, directed by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO). Since 2012, we have supported ongoing training for 54 surgical fellows who live and work in countries where obstetric fistula is most prevalent.
