Obstetric fistula, the result of obstructed labour without timely medical intervention, is a devastating and debilitating preventable childbirth injury. The traumatising impact of obstetric fistula on women and girls has long been severely neglected in human development policy, planning and implementation.
This webinar will explore the experiences and challenges of obstetric fistula from a critical human rights perspective, detailing how the denial of human rights is both a cause and consequence of obstetric fistula and demonstrates the necessity for a human rights-based approach to eradicating obstetric fistula and improving the lives of women and girls.
