Every woman. Every Woreda.
We believe that access to maternal healthcare is the right of every woman, regardless of where they live.
The Hamlin healthcare network, begun more than four decades ago, has now expanded to cover the breadth of the country, with 5 regional hospitals in addition to the original Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital. In addition Hamlin operates a Rehabilitation and Reintegration Centre, and supports over 90 regional midwifery clinics, staffed by more than 500 healthcare and clinical professionals.
There are more than 90 Hamlin-supported midwifery clinics in regional areas, staffed by graduates of the Hamlin College of Midwives.
Hamlin’s Rehabilitation and Reintegration Centre, Desta Mender, offers specialised support for those with long-term injuries.
And with Project Zero now in action, our teams of healthcare professionals and patient identification officers plan to travel to all 800 Woredas (districts) in Ethiopia to find and treat those living with obstetric fistula, while also giving women the knowledge and tools they need to ensure they give birth safely.
