  • The Senegalese Initiative for Fistula Eradication

    The Senegalese Initiative for Fistula Eradication is a non-profit initiative that was established by Professor Serigne Maguèye Guèye in 2005.

    The organisation implements community awareness campaigns to educate rural populations about obstetric fistula, sets up training initiatives to increase the number of specialists with the necessary skills to carry out fistula repair, and carries out fistula treatment camps across the country.

    In 2009, WAHA established a partnership with SIEF to implement fistula training activities and fistula treatment camps, in collaboration with a University Teaching Hospital. The overall conception and management of the project is lead by Professor Guèye, who lectures at the Cheikh Anta Diop University and is Head of the Urology Department at the General Hospital of Grand-Yoff. Professor Gueye was recently elected president of the African Organisation for Research and Teaching on Cancer (AORTIC), an African organisation for research and training in cancer.

    The partnership between WAHA and SIFE has already resulted in community mobilisation and sensitisation activities about fistula and a fistula treatment camp in Mbour.
