Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?

I want a society where obstetric fistula is non existent. As an entirely preventable disease, raising awareness on fistula or the root causes of fistula is an important step towards the elimination of obstetric fistula. I am also concerned with the rehabilitation of fistula survivors and the maintenance of fistula patients especially patients with inoperable fistulas

It's all part of making a better world.

I think if the root causes of obstetric fistula (eg. Child marriage, lack of maternal health services, poor road network, inaccessible healthcare facilities etc) are addressed and fistula eradicated as a result, the world would be so much better

This is really going to help people.

The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by women and girls especially in rural areas.

It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:

Eradication of obstetric fistula

Development of sustainable policies addressing root causes of obstetric fistula

Implementation of already existing policies addressing these root causes

I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.

I will know when women start making more informed decisions about their maternal and reproductive health and when the numbers of fistula patients at the different clinics are drastically reduced

Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
