Footsteps to Healing
Our Mission is to improve women's health in Ethiopia through partnerships dedicated to building clinical service and health care capacity.
About the Problem
In Ethiopia there is a silent epidemic of women suffering from
conditions related to complications of child birth such as obstetric
fistula, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
What we do
OHSU Footsteps to Healing has partnered with Mekelle University, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, St. Paul Millennium Medical College, and the World Wide Fistula Fund to provide not only surgical care but formal clinical and surgical training to local providers through the first urogynecology fellowship in Ethiopia.
