Program Description:

The WFF will officially open the Danja Fistula Center, a free-standing obstetric fistula hospital, in February 2012.

Over the coming years, the WFF hopes to advance the message of hope and healing by replicating this Center in other developing nations around the world. Within just five years, the Center will: provide care for up to 2,500 women with fistula train at least 30 doctors from Niger and other African countries in fistula repair and develop community-based programs to aid in the prevention of obstructed labor (the major cause of fistula). To achieve these milestones, the WFF is currently working to raise several million dollars in a capital campaign.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Our strategy is to band together and support a network of committed individuals with fistula expertise who share this common ideal. In 2013, WFF performed 169 fistula surgeries at the Danja Fistula Center through July. Most of those surgeries were complicated, difficult surgeries, or were surgeries on women who had already undergone 2-5 previous unsuccessful fistula repair surgeries. WFF has continued to train medical professionals in fistula surgical interventions and in the care of women with fistula. THis includes the advanced training of a surgeon at the Danja Fistula Center, an anesthitist at Danja, as well as nurses and other medical technical professionals. To date, there are 15 full-time medical staff present at Danja who have been provided training and who are supported by WFF. The Prevention program team at the Danja Fistula Center worked with cillage leaders to organize a system for an on-call vehicle to tranport women to a health care center during labor. In the event of difficulties with the system, the Danja Fistula Center operated a back-up service. While the nubmer of village transports is not available, the Danja Fistula Center vehicle provided 277 transports from the beginning of the program through July, 2013, with a sharp rise in tranports int eh latter half of the reporting period. This indicated that increased awareness of the program has led to more emergency transports.
