John Dumelo Appointed UN Ambassador In Ghana For Obstetric Fistula


John Dumelo has joined the fight for Obstetric Fistula in the country and globally, after accepting the challenge to be an ambassador to help combat the disease.

The Ghana Health Service and The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has endorsed the actor as Ghana’s ambassador for the fight against the disease.

Obstetric Fistula occurs as a result of prolonged labour during childbirth which leads to a woman leaking either urine or faeces or both.

Statistics show about 1,000 women in the country suffer from the condition, and it’s quite expensive to treat.

“It is a problem that nobody talks about, the first time that I heard about it was last year, and I’m sure most of you here might have heard about it today or yesterday.” Dumelo said at the ceremony where he was confirmed as ambassador.

“If we do not talk about it now and fix the problem now, we don’t want to get to a time where we have over 10,000 women having this problem.

“It is about time we tackled it, and so when I was called by the UNFPA to tackle the problem, I was like, why not, let’s just see how best we can fix this,” he added.
