UNFPA Launches Interactive Map of Global Fistula Care

Heralding it as the “largest and most comprehensive map of available services for women living with obstetric fistula,” UNFPA, along with Direct Relief International and the Fistula Foundation, launched the Global Fistula Map on February 28. Every year there are an estimated 50,000-100,000 new cases of obstetric fistula worldwide. With this map, which details over 150 health facilities providing fistula care in 40 countries across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, UNFPA hopes to enhance fistula prevention and treatment efforts worldwide. The map also provides information on other development indicators, including the lifetime maternal mortality risk and the percentage of births not attended by skilled health personnel.
