Technical Brief

Creating an Enabling Environment for Fistula Prevention and Treatment in Uganda
In 2003, the Ugandan Ministry of Health established a Fistula Technical Working Group (FTWG). This technical brief explains the rationale behind creating the FTWG, describes how it came into being, and presents three important achievements of the Ministry of Health and the FTWG: building an information base for obstetric fistula to better plan for and manage prevention, treatment, and reintegration services; integrating fistula services into the Ugandan health system; and establishing standards, guidelines, and protocols to guide services.
