Pelvic Floor Disorders/Obstetric Fistula.

Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) and obstetric fistula (OF) are common across the globe. PFDs include stress and urge urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain. Although PFD and OF are common in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) there is a lack of awareness and constraints in health care resources. This article focuses on epidemiology, risk factors, assessment, and treatment of PFD and OF in resource-poor settings. Adherence to basic medical ethics principles has to be maintained at all times, coupled with knowledge of and respect for local cultures, traditions, and perceptions of health norms.
