As Medical Advisor, Dr. Andrew Browning will have a strong hand in monitoring and evaluation of our programs across Africa and Asia.
Dr. Browning brings more than 17 years of experience as an expert fistula surgeon, and is an established leader in the field. Trained by the legendary Dr. Catherine Hamiln at the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia, Dr. Browning has built an impressive career as a surgeon and trainer, having helped thousands of women in hard-to-reach places around the world. He continues to conduct rural fistula clinics in countries such as South Sudan, Chad, and Sierra Leone to help isolated women with limited access to maternal care.
In addition to his work with Fistula Foundation, Dr. Browning also consults on global maternal health issues for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), where he was appointed chair of the Fistula Expert Advisory Group. Dr. Browning was also recently named as a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia, in recognition of his “outstanding contributions” to improving maternal healthcare for women in poverty.
Dr. Browning, we are honored to have you on our team!
