Worldwide Fistula Fund guest blog

OHF_FacebookProfileAlthough the World Wide Fistula Fund is for women suffering from obstetric fistula in developing countries, there are still some great guests who blog on a regular basis.

Loran Hollander is a WWF Fund Rehabilitation Officer and she has recently written a blog on ‘Overcoming patient fear to improve fistula recovery’. Well worth the read. The plight of women suffering from obstetric fistula is no less different regardless of whether you live in developed or developing countries.

Loran is a seasoned Physical Therapist and clinical instructor at Laguna Honda Hospital and Rehabilitation Center in San Francisco and an International Women’s Health Consultant for Women’s ACTION Initiative nonprofit organization.

Thanks Loran for highlighting the difficulties of the often forgotten psychological impact of the surgery itself and the fear  that comes afterwards.

While you are there have a look at the work that WWF Fund does for women worldwide at http://worldwidefistulafund.org
