TERREWODE Women's Community Hospital 


The TWCH enables our experienced staff to provide state-of-the-art health care and advance initiatives to prevent fistula, improve maternal health, and empower economic self-sufficiency. This hospital replicates the Hamlin quality of care, allowing us to:

  •  Provide life changing fistula surgery to 600 women per year. 

  • Increase surgical success rates by providing state of the art surgical care, along with pre- and post- operative care and nutritional support.

  • Strengthen the referral system by ensuring the correct diagnosis and treatment, and strengthen TERREWODE’s advocacy network.

  • Assist fistula survivors in rebuilding their lives by providing intensive counseling services and training in health education, microfinance & income generating skills.

TWCH serves as a Center of Excellence and demonstration facility. With support from our partners, the center will facilitate surgical training programs and help foster innovation in techniques and methods for physical and psychosocial rehabilitation of fistula survivors. In addition, the hospital will facilitate inter-regional collaboration to bring greater awareness and resources to fistula treatment and prevention.
