Hidden in Haiti
Vesico-vaginal fistula is a life-changing affliction that can be the result of prolonged unattended childbirth in under developed countries, including Haiti. Project Haiti and IVUmed have collaborated with reconstructive urologists, Dr. Joe Costa and Dr. Joe Babiarz to run workshops teaching Haitian urologists how to repair these terrible conditions. This video depicts the psychological and social impact of this condition on Haitian women. It was prepared by Professor James Kenney from the School of Journalism and Broadcasting, Western Kentucky University, who accompanied us on several trips.
