Prevent Fistula

This poster offers five ways of preventing fistula:

  • Delay marriage until after 18 years of age
  • Provide proper nutrition to girl children to ensure normal growth
  • Get prenatal checks at least four times during pregnancy
  • Give birth in a health facility
  • Use family planning to avoid unintended pregnancy

At the bottom of the poster is a list of eight hospitals which offer obstetric fistula repair free of charge.
