A Congressional Briefing: Ending Fistula Forever

On May 24, EngenderHealth joined with legislators, advocates, and health experts on Capitol Hill to discuss progress in preventing and treating obstetric fistula around the world. Together with our partners in the Campaign to End Fistula, we highlighted not just the heartbreaking stories of women living with fistula, but a vision of strong, healthy mothers—one that is only possible when women have access to quality maternal health care. The goal of the event, hosted by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), was to garner support for H.R. 949, a bill supporting increased assistance for fistula prevention and treatment.
