In 2003, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and partners launched a global Campaign to End Fistula. The Campaign is currently in its second implementation phase (2006-2010). It has raised a total of 31 million US dollars between 2004 and 2008. The Campaign supports fistula prevention as well as treatment and psychosocial support of women living with fistula in more than 45 countries. At the regional and global level, the Campaign provides technical support to national programmes and engages in international advocacy for the elimination of fistula.
