The record estimates that at least $750 million is required to treat existing and fresh cases between today and 2015. Caused by prolonged, obstructed labour without timely medical intervention, the problem affects as much as 3.5 million women in the world. The report Supporting Attempts to End Obstetric Fistula states that considerable improvement has been achieved in addressing obstetric fistula.
