Since 2012, the FIGO Fistula Surgery Training Initiative has been building the capacities of local trainee fistula surgeons – ‘FIGO Fellows’ – and multidisciplinary teams in sub-Saharan and Asian countries to provide treatment to women suffering from obstetric fistula in some of the world’s most underserved communities.
