We are proud to be part of the global movement that lobbied the 67th UN General Assembly-Report of the Secretary General on “Supporting efforts to end obstetric fistula” (6th August 2012) and the 67th UN General Assembly Resolution on “Supporting efforts to end obstetric fistula” (21st November 2012). Both reports outline efforts made at the international, regional and national levels and by the UN System to end obstetric fistula. Recommendations to accelerate these efforts within a human based approach to end obstetric fistula as a key step towards achieving MDG5 are offered.
