Statement by UN Resident Coordinator Ms. Mia Seppo on the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula, 3rd June 2015, in Dedza
The UN System in Malawi joins the Government in the commemoration of the 2015 International day to end Obstetric Fistula. This is an important day for the country as we highlight the need to restore the dignity of women affected by this unfortunate and preventable yet very common child birth injury.
Obstetric fistula is a public health and human rights issue in Malawi, causing severe disability, discrimination, abandonment and insecurity amongst women and young girls. It is primarily a result of lack access to quality maternal health care services and early pregnancies. The increasing cases of Fistula in women are clear sign of how gender inequities and inequalities, including child marriages and early pregnancies amount to a violation of multiple human rights and human security.
