International Day To End Obstetric Fistula : 23 May

Women's rights are human rights! End fistula now!
Obstetric fistula is one of the most serious and tragic childbirth injuries. A hole between the birth canal and bladder and/or rectum, it is caused by prolonged, obstructed labour without access to timely, high-quality medical treatment. It leaves women with incontinence problems, and often leads to chronic medical problems, depression, social isolation and deepening poverty.

This problem is preventable with the correct medical assistance and its occurrence is a violation of human rights and a reminder of gross inequities.

The theme for this year is “Women's rights are human rights! End fistula now!” We must put an end to the obstetric fistula as a critical step towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and realizing the promise of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action as well as the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development. Both plans are oriented to fight for women’s rights, including the sexual and reproductive health.

In order to reach this goal, the UN Population Fund has launched an updated manual that serves as a crucial resource and a guiding light on the path to achieving health, gender equality and human rights for all.

Cover of the UNFPA publication title: Obstetric Fistula & other forms of female genital fistula
Obstetric fistula & other forms of female genital fistula: Guiding principles for clinical management and programme development.
The so-called “orange manual” has long been the only authoritative, gold-standard guide to the holistic, comprehensive and “bigger picture” aspects of eliminating obstetric fistula (including programming, policy, prevention, treatment, social reintegration and more). The original (2006) version of the manual has now been updated with the latest evidence, strategies, tools and resources.

Ending obstetric fistula by 2030
2020 marked the count-down towards the goal of ending the problem of obstetric fistula by 2030, according to the last report of the Secretary General.

Obstetric fistula is preventable; it can largely be avoided by delaying the age of first pregnancy; the cessation of harmful traditional practices; and timely access to obstetric care.

Unfortunately, the current pandemic affects all these preventive measures in developing countries where obstetric fistula still exists. More women and girls will be at risk of obstetric fistula due to overburdened health systems. In addition, fistula repairs have widely been suspended as they are deemed to be non-urgent and hospitals have diverted resources to care for patients with COVID-19.

Besides, it is expected that 13 million more child marriages could take place by 2030 than would have otherwise. Families are more likely to marry off daughters to alleviate the perceived burden of caring for them, especially in the anticipated economic fallout of the pandemic.

Due to all these reasons an increase in cases might occur and new strategies will be required in the post-COVID-19 recovery period to address the expected backlog of cases.

With this possible future scenario of preventive measures in danger, now more than ever, it is important to call on the international community to use the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula to significantly raise awareness and intensify actions towards ending obstetric fistula, as well as urging post-surgery follow-up and tracking of fistula patients.

You can have your banner on top of this page where we have shared Wally Olin's sample banner type

No banners to political parties, politicians, erotic or porno websites, websites of naxalites, terrorists, activists, anti government as well as good sites which collect money for NGOs

Fees : Depends on whether it is Fortune 500 company or Forbes 2000 company or ...

Anyone not competing with their products can share their banner above them. e.g. No bank can share their banner above any Bank or no company which makes cars can share their banner above a company which has cars which they manufacture or sell.

Of the banner fees , Rs 3650/ - or USD 50/- will be used as Birthday philanthropist where we can share the name of the organisation with its link of the day of their registration (as their birth date) or to any individual with her or his birthdate. Our idea is to donate at least Rs 13433000/- to Thane because founder Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat's father (Bhau) did a Gift Deed of his house in Thane and gave it to founder and the government cost of property was Rs 13433000/- Founder does have that much money because his idea was to help others without money. But in the "court case" of his accident, result was given on the hasis of how much salary he has lost and founder hardly took money as salary. So now he is promoting good salary to NGO Leaders and Social Workers and term insurance because if the social worker expires on her or his life then they dont save money and the family faces issues of money. So after his almost fatal accident, he took term insurance and he is keen that philanthropist at least do term insurance for the NGO people they help.
