Obstetric Fistula is a free, online, open access training course developed the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of Oxford, Harvard Maternal Health Taskforce, The Global Health Network and the Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research.
Obstetric Fistula is an important cause of maternal morbidity in low-and middle-income countries where access to skilled birth attendants is limited. Each year between 50,000 to 100,000 women worldwide are affected by obstetric fistula and it is estimated that more than 2 million young women live with untreated obstetric fistula in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. This 4 module course addresses the epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, classification and management of Obstetric Fistula based on current evidence based research. Each of the four modules take between 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete with a certificate issued upon successful completion of the final quiz.
