Millennium Fellowship Project: Lending Voice to Fistula survivors
This project is targeting to increase awareness about Obstetric Fistula especially among men in rural areas. Male involvement is critical as most men are not away what obstetric fistula is and once their wives are afflicted with this condition, the men abandon their wives and expose them to harsher stigma and in worse case scenario they resort to gender violence. To mitigate this, this project will spearhead awareness campaigns and capacity build men to fully understand what Obstetric fistula is, how it can be prevented and treated.
