O Conselho em português
Fala português? We are always looking for volunteers who can translate content about the rubber tappers, extractivist reserves and sustainable livelihoods in the Amazon from our website into English, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian or any other language where people are interested in learning about the CNS. Please send me a message or introduction and I'll be happy to provide you with more information.
Obstetric fistula (or vaginal fistula) is a severe medical condition in which a fistula (hole) develops between either the rectum and vagina rectovaginal fistula or between the bladder and vagina after severe or failed childbirth, when adequate medical care is not available.
Primary risk factors are early and/or closely-spaced pregnancies and lack of access to emergency obstetric care; a 1993 study in Nigeria found that 55 percent of the victims were under 19 years of age, and 94 percent gave birth at home or in poorly equipped local clinics. When available at all, cesarean sections and other medical interventions are usually not performed until after tissue damage has already been done.
Early marriage, domestic violence, female genital mutilation, malnutrition which is linked to under-development of the female body, and lack of education/illiteracy also put women at great risk for developing obstetric fistula.Get involved!Watch the video!
