Trailblazers on Protecting and Advancing the Rights of Women and Girls - Dr. Catherine Hamlin

Dr. Catherine Hamlin, who passed away in March 2020, dedicated most of herĀ  life to treating women and girls with fistula, focusing not only on the physical injury itself, but also on the scars created by stigma and discrimination. Her charitable organization, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, has brought hope and healing to women and girls, raised global awareness of fistula and spurred innovative efforts to end it.
