    BALTIMORE, MARYLAND — The Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, is carrying out a multi-country study to learn more about women with fistula, a disability caused by obstructed labor during childbirth. Currently the study includes Ethiopia, Niger, and Bangladesh. This grant from MacArthur will make it possible for Nigeria to be added. The study will follow women who receive surgical repair for twelve months after the operation to document their progress both in medical terms and in their social integration into the community, and will build the research capacity of the centers participating in the study.
