Regional Strategy Meeting of Surgeons Convened in Malawi

Malawi Surgeons Meeting

Building on the success we’ve seen in assembling partners in Kenya and Nepal, we recently convened a meeting of surgeons in Malawi as a first step towards establishing a treatment network in southern Africa. The meeting was attended by our CEO Kate Grant, Medical Director Dr. Steve Arrowsmith, and Program Director Lindsey Pollaczek, as well as eight partner surgeons from Malawi, Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Not only did the meeting give participants an assessment of the current fistula treatment landscape in each country represented, but it was also an opportunity for surgeons to come together, build relationships, and find ways to work together throughout the region to get women treated faster.
