Dr Patrick Yamoah, Medical Suprintendent of the Hospital, said Obstetric Fistula is mostly caused by poor socio-economic conditions and bad cultural practices.

He said this is attributed to poverty and access to basic health care, adding that some patients come to the hospital  themselves under the pretext of neglection by their husband and family members.

“It takes a total cost of about 2,000 Ghana cedis for the operation of one patient and takes the patient about a month to recover.”

Dr Yamoah said  the hospital has operated more than 60 patients from January till now,  and had referred some of them to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

He mentioned  that a team of visiting doctors from the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital often visit the hospital to assist the resident doctors with  the operations.

Dr Yamoah also mentioned  that the hospital was faced with some challenges, and that lack of staff was the major challenge  facing   the hospital.

He said surgery alone cannot solve the problem,  and hat the patients need some start up capital to start life as they have been stigmatized in their various communities.
