The Global Competency-Based Fistula Surgery Training Manual, is aimed at healthcare providers from low- and middle-income countries involved in the prevention and management of obstetric fistula. The training curriculum articulates what fistula surgical training should be, which allows both trainer and trainee performance to be objectively evaluated and appropriate follow-up conducted of the surgeons who have been trained. Standardization also allows more doctors to be trained while identifying what fistula surgeons can safely undertake at a given level of skill or experience.
