For all they do to strengthen family and community, EngenderHealth celebrates fathers around the world.🌍

Happy Father's Day to all who are celebrating!🧡

Recently, @GlobalHlth5050 found that many orgs do not post their policies, though there are numerous audiences and reasons for making organizational policies public.

@TraciLBaird discusses why we’re working to “put it all out there” in our new blog ➡️ http://bit.ly/PoliciesBlog

Three outstanding global health and #SRHR leaders have joined the EngenderHealth board! 🙌

Incredible @mackenziescott list of “286 Teams Empowering Voices the World Needs to Hear," with a strong emphasis on #equity! Exciting to see the inclusion of @riseupforgirls, led by our brilliant Board member and partner for #genderequality, @DeniseRDunning!

We applaud this transparency from @EngenderHealth, who have also signed the FAIR SHARE Commitment to achieve #genderequality in their leadership by 2030! 🙌🏾 https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1404792786516426757

We have long made it clear that EngenderHealth is committed to equality, diversity, and social inclusion.

As part of that commitment, and inspired by @GlobalHlth5050, we have worked to increase transparency around our organizational policies. Learn how ➡️ http://bit.ly/PoliciesBlog

Fistula Care Plus

EngenderHealth implements the Fistula Care Plus project, the largest US government-funded effort to date to focus on treatment and prevention of fistula. With support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Fistula Care Plus conducts a full range of efforts to restore the dignity of women suffering from fistula and to address the causes of obstetric fistula so that new cases may be prevented.

Fistula Care Plus collaborates with a host of international and national partners. Key global partners include the Population Council, Dimagi, Direct Relief International, the Fistula Foundation, the Maternal Health Task Force, and The Association for the Rehabilitation and Re-orientation of Women for Development (TERREWODE).

The objectives of the Fistula Care Plus project are to achieve:

  • A strengthened enabling environment to institutionalize fistula prevention, treatment, and reintegration in the public and private sectors.
  • Enhance community understanding and practices to prevent fistula, improve access to fistula treatment, reduce stigma, and support the reintegration of women and girls with fistula.
  • Reduce transportation, communications, and financial barriers to accessing preventive care, detection, treatment, and reintegration support.
  • Strengthen provider and health facility capacity to provide and sustain quality services for fistula prevention, detection, and treatment.
  • Strengthen evidence base for approaches to improve fistula care and scaled-up application of standard monitoring and evaluation indicators for prevention and treatment.

Fistula Care Plus builds on, enhances, and expands the work undertaken by the previous Fistula Care project (2007-2013). Through Fistula Care, EngenderHealth worked alongside its partners and local and national governments to support more than 26,000 fistula repair surgeries in 14 countries and trained 22,000 surgeons, nurses, and community health workers to prevent and treat fistula. The project also helped support policy changes that tackled root causes of fistula, including lack of access to family planning and poor access to emergency obstetric care.
