In 2011 WAHA International saw significant progress in its role as a key player in improving maternal health in disadvantaged communities worldwide. The year saw the continued treatment of women with obstetric fistulas, with over 2,250 women having undergone successful operations.

In Gondar university teaching hospital in north Ethiopia WAHA also inaugurated a new 70-bed state-of-the-art international fistula treatment and training centre.

Over 100 of our newly upgraded motorbike ambulances were deployed in Kenya, Senegal, Ethiopia and Somalia and in tandem with innovative mobile phone referral systems, meeting the transport needs of populations in difficult to reach localities.

We expanded and evolved our activities to include intervention in crisis settings, notably with host and refugee/ internally displaced populations in Dabaad, Kenya and Mogadishu, Somalia, bringing much needed maternal health services to the regions.

We have been able to develop our programmes thanks to the support of individual donors and institutions. Our budget for 2011 was just over 2 million Euro, not including in-kind donations of medical material and equipment.
