Our vision is simple:
To eradicate obstetric fistula. Forever.

For more than six decades, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia has focused on the holistic treatment of women and girls with obstetric fistulas in Ethiopia.

The Hamlin Model of Care for treatment of obstetric fistula injuries considers both the physical impact and psychological trauma of this childbirth injury. As well as treating injuries, we empower women and girls and help sustain their well-being. The Hamlin College of Midwives in Ethiopia was established to increase the number of qualified birth attendants in rural areas, helping prevent obstetric fistulas from occurring in the first place.

Women with obstetric fistulas have suffered great trauma, but this does not need to be the end of their stories. We have the knowledge and skills to help them recover. We simply need the collective action and means to make this vision a reality.

Please join the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation as we stand with women and girls. Together, we can support them as they reassert their humanity, secure their health and well-being, and regain their roles in their families and communities.
