Freedom From Fistula has its own projects in Sierra Leone, Malawi and Madagascar and also partners with other facilities in these countries.

Our vision is for all women in Africa to have access to healthcare during pregnancy and childbirth and to help eradicate obstetric fistulas.

The Aberdeen Women’s Centre in Freetown provides the only comprehensive fistula repair service in Sierra Leone and has the capacity to treat up to 300 fistula patients per year.  Our maternity unit delivers up to 3000 babies a year, we have an outpatient clinic treating more than 20,000 children each year, a support program for teenage mothers and a new unit providing medical care and counseling to victims of sexual and gender based violence.

Madagascar

We have a dedicated fistula unit in the grounds of CHUT Hospital Toamasina with a capacity to treat 250 patients a year.

Malawi

Our 35 bed unit, in the grounds of Bwaila Hospital, has its own dedicated operating theatre and the capacity to treat more than 400 women every year, many of whom are found through our Ambassador and community sensitization programs that ensures women and girls from across Malawi have access to our permanent service.
