Vihiga residents to receive free fistula surgery

It is a sigh of relief for women with fistula in Vihiga County following the introduction of a free fistula surgery service at the County’s referral hospital in Mbale town. 

Starting Friday, the referral hospital in partnership with Fistula Foundation, will be attending to women with the condition in the county. 

County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for health services Prof. Inonda Mwanje said the patients would be screened and treated.

Prof Mwanje stated that they estimate to have hundreds of women suffering from the condition in the county silently.

The County health Chief Officer (CO) Dr. Mary Anyiendah encouraged women with the condition to turn up at the facility to benefit from free surgery.

Dr. Maureen Okango, who is in charge of the service at the hospital, said they have so far attended five cases and they expect more.

Fistula Foundation’s Country Director Habiba Mohamed urged the residents, particularly the needy ones, to take advantage of the service.
