The African Press Agency on 2 November reported that Malawi, in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), will hold a month-long National Fistula Camp to treat women suffering from obstetric fistula.
The camp will be held from November 7 to December 3 in Thyolo District, 90 kilometres south of the commercial city Blantyre.
According to UNFPA National Program Officer for Reproductive Health Grace Hiwa, the camp will help women especially those from the rural areas of the country to deal with their health concerns. “We want every woman with obstetric fistula to take advantage of the camp to identify solutions for their problem,” she said.
She added that local and international specialists on fistula have been lined up to assist in treating women during the camp. Read in English: The African Press Agency
