International Day to End Obstetric Fistula in
Days to go:
The International Day to End Obstetric Fistula is an occasion designed to raise awareness and mobilize action to eliminate a devastating childbirth injury that predominantly affects women in developing countries. Each year, this global observance day invites various international organizations, healthcare professionals, and local communities to come together, advocate for quality maternal healthcare services, and promote solutions that help prevent and treat obstetric fistula.
Obstetric fistula is a historical issue which came into global focus in 2003 when the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and its partners launched a global campaign to address this health condition. By contributing both financially and through partnerships with international organizations, New Zealanders have played a crucial role in making obstetric fistula a part of the global health agenda.
On the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula, this close relationship between New Zealand and global health partners is highlighted and celebrated. Communities, non-profit organizations, and individuals across the country attend events, share resources, and join discussions to amplify the message that obstetric fistula can and should be eliminated. The International Day to End Obstetric Fistula is observed on May 23 and reaffirms New Zealand's commitment to end obstetric fistula and support the cause for better maternal healthcare worldwide.
