Obstetric fistula is the formation of an injury usually caused by prolonged labor. This training occurs when the baby’s head begins to press the pelvic walls for several hours, making the flow of blood to these tissues to be interrupted.
Since 2012, the United Nations General Assembly in its concern about the high rates of maternal mortality celebrates the International Day for the Eradication of obstetric fistula, an injury that affects more than 50 000 women in the world.
In its resolution A / RES / 67/147, the General Assembly called on the international community to use every year the international day to raise awareness and significantly intensify measures to end obstetric fistula.
Worldwide there are over 300 million women with complications of pregnancy and childbirth. For every woman who dies of maternal causes, there are at least 20 women suffering from disorders of maternal health; one of the most severe is obstetric fistula.
