TERREWODE’s approach to generating awareness and advocacy around obstetric fistula is cross-cutting. We engage with district authorities, politicians, technocrats and opinion leaders, to address key emerging issues using our holistic obstetric fistula program.
Our Advocacy and Awareness work is focused at the district and community level, yet we also engage at the national level to pressure officials to enact policies to improve the health and livelihood of vulnerable women and girls.
As the voice for women who suffer from obstetric fistula, we carefully arrange and take advantage of advocacy and awareness platforms to facilitate those most affected to engage with the duty bearers. We create deliberate spaces for the empowerment and involvement of vulnerable women in advocacy and awareness.
TERREWODE also extends obstetric fistula and sexual and reproductive rights trainings to law enforcement officers, health professionals, schools, community clubs and members of the media.
