International Day to End Obstetric Fistula in
Days to go:
The International Day to End Obstetric Fistula is an annual observance that seeks to raise awareness and foster a collective commitment towards ending the prevalence of obstetric fistula. An obsteric fistula is a devastating childbirth injury primarily affecting women in developing countries. Addressing this issue is crucial not only from a health perspective but also in terms of promoting gender equality, as it disproportionately affects women due to limited access to reproductive healthcare services and education.
The United Nations established the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula in 2012, recognizing the urgent need to tackle this issue. Supporting endeavors addressing the issue of obstetric fistula reaffirms Australia's commitment to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, which include goals on ending preventable maternal mortality and ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health services.
In Australia, the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula is marked by various events and activities aimed at raising awareness and funds to support global efforts in eradicating this debilitating condition. Australians are encouraged to participate in events or donate to reputable international organizations working towards the cause, such as the United Nations Population Fund. The International Day to End Obstetric Fistula is observed annually on May 23rd, providing an opportunity for Australians to join the global community in working towards a future free from obstetric fistula.
