FISTULA IN ZAMBIA
Fistula affects many women in developing countries who marry young and bear children during their teenage years. Women who suffer from fistula are left incontinent and often abandoned by society, which views this medical problem as a social disaster. Now, doctors are able to help correct the problem by performing simple surgical procedures on women in Zambia. The United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA, has launched a global fistula campaign to raise funds to allow doctors to cure this medical condition."
