Zimbabwe

In August 2010, WAHA International participated in a fistula treatment session conducted by Dr Tom Raassen in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

CONTEXT

Zimbabwe’s population is over 11 million people. The average life expectancy is low at 47 years for women and nearly 48 years for men.

Health care prices are exorbitantly high. As a result, only a privileged rich minority mainly in urban areas has access to health care. The majority of births (71 percent) occur in rural areas with a lack of access to medical care. One out of 52 women will die during delivery.
