Training manuals on Pelvic organ prolapse, obstetric fistula and clinical protocol on Gender-based violence Published
A step forward in preventing obstetric fistula, pelvic organ prolapse and GBV in Nepal
The Government of Nepal has unveiled its first ever competency-based training manuals on pelvic organ prolapse(POP) and obstetric fistula as well as a clinical protocol on gender-based violence (GBV).
POP (also called uterine prolapse or fallen womb) is a bodily condition in which pelvic muscles can no longer adequately support organs in the pelvic area and is a significant reproductive morbidity in Nepal. Obstetric fistula - one of the most serious injuries of childbearing - is a hole in the birth canal, caused by prolonged and obstructed labor due to lack of timely and adequate medical care, early or closely spaced pregnancies.
The manuals and the protocol are the first national training packages and guideline respectively for healthcare providers on management of POP, obstetric fistula and GBV. They were developed by the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) with technical and financial assistance fromUNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, and also with Jhpiego's technical support.
