“We don’t just treat a hole in the bladder, we treat the whole patient with love and tender care, literacy and numeracy classes, a brand new dress and money to travel home.”– Dr Catherine Hamlin
The Hamlin Model of Care
The impact of obstetric fistula goes much deeper than physical injuries. It often also carries the grief of losing a child and the trauma of isolation and shame.
Dr Catherine Hamlin developed the Hamlin Model of Care, which is now the world’s leading approach to treating fistula. It treats the whole person with respect and compassion – considering the physical, psychological and emotional impact of fistula.
Through healing the body, mind and soul, women’s lives are completely transformed.
The Hamlin Model of Care has been widely replicated around the world.
