Obstetric fistula is a medical condition in which a fistula develops between either the rectum and vagina or between the bladder and vagina after severe or failed childbirth, when adequate medical care is not available. Obstetric fistula is also known as vaginal fistula. It is an an childbirth injury that has been largely neglected, despite the devastating impact it has on the lives of affected girls and women.
Obstetric fistula is preventable and it can largely be avoided by: delaying the age of first pregnancy, the cessation of harmful traditional practices and timely access to obstetric care.
