23 mai 2015 – A l'occasion de la Journée internationale de l'élimination de la fistule obstétricale qui est célébrée le 23 mai, le Secrétaire général de l'ONU, Ban Ki-moon, a demandé aux dirigeants du monde entier de prendre l'engagement d'éradiquer ce fléau.

Bien qu'elle puisse être totalement évitée et, dans bien des cas, traitée, la fistule obstétricale est une complication dévastatrice de l'accouchement. Devenues incontinentes, les femmes, jeunes pour beaucoup, sont souvent stigmatisées, maltraitées et rejetées par leur famille et leur communauté.

SECRETARY-GENERAL
PRESS RELEASE

Following is UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for the International Day to End Obstetric Fistula, observed on 23 May:

Obstetric fistula is a devastating yet completely preventable and, in many cases, treatable injury of childbirth.
