Fistula Surgery Training Initiative
                     FIGO 2015

Dear FIGO Friends,

FIGO and partners met in Addis Ababa from 7-9 September 2014 to discuss and review the Fistula Surgery Training Initiative with the first 12 Fellows who underwent training between 2012 - 2014. The meeting was kindly supported by the Fistula Foundation and more information will be circulated shortly. In the meantime we are happy to share some memorable photos from the meeting.
The four most recent Fellows underwent fistula surgery training from 27 July - 6 September 2015 in CCBRT, Tanzania and Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.

Now that FIGO's Triennial World Congress in Vancouver is only 4 days away, we have included another schedule of Key Fistula Sessions. We look forward to seeing you there!

To check full details and up-to-date information about fistula events and all other sessions, please see the complete Congress Scientific Programme including session dates, times and locations, as well as the names and countries of origin of session Chairs and speakers. 

We hope you've enjoyed this brief edition of the newsletter and if you are attending Congress next week, please don't hesitate to get in touch, the FIGO team will be delighted to see you and to catch up on news.
