At Aweil State Hospital Ajok Athian, 18 years old cries on a bed while talking to a nurse. She has gone to a full fistula recovery surgery after complications during birth. Ajok had complications on delivery when she was in her village, her baby died during birth and the only help she got was from a TBA (traditional birth attendant) who didn’t had the knowledge required causing her the fistula. In a collaboration between the State Government, UNFPA (United Nations Populations Fund), and MSF a fistula campaign offered free corrective surgeries to 40 fistula survivors. Many women suffer from the condition but most of them do not seek treatment because they being mocked by people in the area. Fistula survivors endure psychological trauma, depression, deteriorating health, increased vulnerability to poverty, and social stigma from family and friends. Due to lack of access to treatment and associated isolation, many survivors tend to live with the condition for years or even decades.
