Over two million women in developing countries suffer from complications in childbirth that lead to a leaking of urine and waste. The condition known as obstetric fistula persists where women lack access to medical care and where malnutrition rates are high; poor nutrition leads to complications in childbirth. The United Nations has designated May 23 as the first-ever International Day to End Obstetric Fistula. Aid for Africa members The Fistula Foundation, Worldwide Fistula Fund, Family Care International and Tostan are making real progress on ending the condition. Learn how.
