#FridayReads - Last week we completed the first community training for community health volunteers in Mpika, Zambia, our first step toward establishing a nationwide #fistula treatment network in the country.

"When asked at the very beginning if anyone knew of a woman living with fistula in her community, only one volunteer raised her hand. By the end of the training, they were able to identify an estimated 8-10 women with fistula from their communities."
