Federal Health Minister Lends a Hand to USAID Fistula Surgical Repair Clinic at Osun State Medical Center

Nigerian Minister of Health Professor Isaac Adewole performs fistula surgery on a 37-year-old mother of four, alleviating four years of continual suffering. The Minister assisted with a USAID-supported free clinic in Osun State to highlight a nationwide initiative to shrink Nigeria’s large backlog of cases awaiting treatment.
We still have too large a backlog of women living with fistula in the country,” Minister Adewole acknowledged.
USAID has supported thirteen state governments in their efforts to reduce incidences of fistula by providing materials, training and logistical support to new and existing medical centers.
