Obstetrical fistula is a severe gynecological condition widespread among rural women in sub-Saharan Africa. Millions give birth far from a clinic. After undergoing excision and/or early marriage, they may suffer prolonged, obstructed labour and a stillborn child. Fistula renders thousands of women incontinent, social pariahs rejected by their partners and community. Dr. Danielle Perrault, general practitioner and globetrotter from Québec, travels to Mali to inquire.
