NATIONAL STRATEGIC FRAME WORK FOR THE ELIMINATION OF OBSTETRIC FISTULA IN NIGERIA 2019 - 2033

Obstetric Fistula a major public health problem with an estimated global burden of 2,000,000 cases (Geneva: World Health Organization; 2014) of which Nigeria contributes about 150,000 cases, furthermore, about 12,000 new cases of obstetric fistula occur every year in Nigeria (Engender Health; 2014).

At the current pace however, it is obvious that the country would not achieve it's goal of eliminating obstetric fistula within a generation.

This revised and costed National Strategic Plan (2019 -2033) provides a road map for intensification of efforts towards realising a fistula-free Nigeria.
