Zonta works to eliminate obstetric fistula, reduce maternal and newborn fatalities in Liberia

The Liberia Fistula program was initiated to contribute to the elimination of obstetric and traumatic fistula and the reduction of maternal mortality, morbidity and sexual violence against women in Liberia and to improve the socio-economic status of fistula survivors.

Zonta International has supported the Liberia Fistula Project since 2008. For the 2016-2018 Biennium, Zonta has committed an additional US$1 million to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) for the project.
