With the success of Phase 1 of Campaign for Fistula Free Northern Ghana, NOYED-Ghana has taken the first steps to expand its community led education and awareness campaign in to the remote district of Kpandai in the Northern Region.
“We focussed on four communities on the outskirts of Tamale. At the beginning of phase 1, only 57.5 per cent of respondents stated they had heard of fistula, however the majority were unable to state when or where they had heard of it nor describe any signs or symptoms,” NOYED-Ghana Executive Director Mr A. A. Iddi said.
“By the end of our three month campaign 92.5 per cent of respondents stated they had heard of obstetric fistula and 70 per cent could describe the causes, signs and symptoms of this devastating condition.”
