A Call to Action to End Iatrogenic Fistula
August 17, 2016
Evidence is emerging that iatrogenic causes contribute significantly to the burden of genital fistula in low-income countries. Given the preventability and severity of fistula, data on iatrogenic fistula indicate the urgency of improving surgical training, supervision, and facility capacity, particularly amid increasing rates of cesarean section and gynecologic surgery in low-income countries. While data indicate the need for a consistent definition of iatrogenic fistula, people working on these issues have yet to reach a consensus on definitions or a minimum acceptable standard of surgical care. During the webinar, moderator Bethany Cole and presenters Dr. Lauri Romanzi and Dr. Vandana Tripathi aimed to further the global effort to address these important issues.
