Obstetric Fistula Repair Module

A standardized pack of high-quality medicines and surgical supplies necessary for fistula repair surgery and post-operative care. The comprehensive module was created in close consultation with leading surgical experts, and many of the items inside were donated by healthcare companies.

Direct Relief provides the modules free-of-charge to qualified health facilities that treat obstetric fistula - a hole in the birth canal that is caused by prolonged and obstructed labor. To date, Direct Relief’s Fistula Repair Modules have enabled more than 60,000 life-restoring surgeries.
