Product Overview

A Social Worker''s Investigation of Childbirth Injured Women in Northern Nigeria investigates Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF), a childbirth injury commonly found among younger adolescent wives in northern Nigeria. Examining the problem from a social worker''s perspective, this timely work focuses on VVF as it relates to the social and ecological environment of the affected women. This comprehensive study defines and describes VVF as it manifests itself in Africa, explores the history and epidemiology of the condition and its treatment, and describes the affected women and how their position in society predisposed them to childbirth injury.
