Thanks everyone! The FC+ website is a great place to start for more information and resources on fistula prevention and treatment, including research results, project reports, and stories from providers and clients. http://bit.ly/fistularesources https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364608432880443393

Obstetric fistula is a beacon of inequality, as it occurs where women are already living with limited resources and access to healthcare. Additionally, once fistula occurs, women often face significant stigma and isolation which can impact their social and economic wellbeing. https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364605591528886273

Postpartum Hemorrhage – Pubs Maternal Health

Community-Based Distribution of Misoprostol for the Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage: Evaluation of a Pilot Intervention in Tangail District, Bangladesh
The leading causes of maternal mortality are hemorrhage, eclampsia, abortion, injuries, sepsis, and obstructed labor. Deaths related to postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) present a major challenge to health systems, particularly in rural areas of Bangladesh, where infrastructure is poor and health facilities often lack skilled staff, drugs, and equipment. Misoprostol is a proven uterotonic drug that is increasingly used in clinical and home delivery settings to prevent and manage PPH.  In 2008, the Mayer Hashi/RESPOND Project implemented a pilot project in the Tangail District of Bangladesh to determine the effectiveness of using government and nongovernmental field workers at the community level to distribute misoprostol tablets and ensure that women take the drug immediately postpartum. This evaluation report discusses the process, approaches, and strategies followed in the implementation of the pilot project and uses a review of relevant project documents and activity reports, as well as interviews and focus group discussions with clients, service providers, supervisors, and program managers. The overall goal of the evaluation was to assess the effectiveness of the community-based misoprostol intervention program strategies and to gather lessons learned and provide recommendations for the national scale-up.
