The Center for Global Health is pleased to announce a new partnership wtih University College Dublin, Addis Ababa University and Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (HFE)


Thanks to a generous grant from ESTHER Ireland, a research team comprised of Dr. Frédérique Vallières, Dr. Fiona Larkan, Professor Mac MacLachlan, and Dr. Maria Healy (UCD) will travel to Addis Ababa during mid-October to conduct a needs assessment. The principal outcome of this visit will be to establish a research agenda that addresses key issues relating to the prevention of fistula through the provision of quality maternal care; the social, psychological, and physical management of care for women who undergo treatment for fistula, and the rehabilitation needs of women following treatment. Together, the partnership aims to create a research culture within HFE that contributes to greater participation in research and improves clinical practice.
