Mission and Vision
CCBRT's mission is to become a healthcare social enterprise serving the community and the most vulnerable with accessible, specialised services and development programmes. Elimika is a step forward in providing that level and accessibiltiy of care to women with obstetric fistula.
As a result of health inequalities created by poverty, up to 21,400 Tanzanian women currently live with obstetric fistula(1), with an estimated 3,000 more developing the condition each year(2). More than 85% of these women lose their baby in childbirth(3). Due to social stigma, limited knowledge of available treatment and the condition itself, affected women are often rejected by their communities and live in isolation, making their identification and referral for treatment a major challenge.
