About the Campaign
Founded by Dr Catherine Hamlin in 1996, Hamlin Fistula is responsible for the huge expansion of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia for the treatment, prevention and awareness of obstetric fistula.
It is the only hospital of its kind in the world dedicated exclusively to women with obstetric fistula. Patients undergo surgical repair by Ethiopian and expatriate surgeons trained at the hospital’s main facility. Around 93% of these patients are repaired successfully and to date they have now repaired 30,000 Women.
Dr Hamlin has opened three new hospitals in the Ethiopian cities of Bahir Dar, Mekele and Yirgalem. She plans to open 2 more hospitals and continue to be a global centre of expertise and training in fistula repair.
