When complications arise, as they do in approximately 15% of all births, there is no one available to treat the woman, leading to disabling injuries like fistula, and even death. 2)The root causes of fistula are grinding poverty and the low status of women and girls. In developing countries, the poverty and malnutrition in children contributes to the condition of stunting, where the girls skeleton, and therefore pelvis as well, do not fully mature. This stunted condition can contribute to obstructed labor, and therefore fistula. 3)Every day, approximately 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 4)Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities "Maternal Mortality" World Health Organization May 2014.
