This August, Fistula Foundation partner surgeon Dr. Lauri Romanzi led a collaborative fistula training exercise for surgeon trainees from Rwanda and Somaliland. Carried out at Edna Adan University Hospital and National Boroma Fistula Hospital in Somaliland, the training was a great success. 56 surgeries were completed and Dr. Romanzi reported that the six trainees in attendance collaborated extremely well, allowing for an accelerated and productive learning experience. The group will reconvene in early 2015 to complete a fistula repair clinic and receive more in-depth training.
