Treatment, and prevention would really depend on where it is located, and for what reason the fistula occured in the first place. For the Ethiopian women it is mainly because they are small due to poor nutrition and babies can't pass through their pelvises. They baby gets stuck and dies and the woman is in labor for more than a week. It puts pressure on her bladder etc. and causes the tissue to die, therefore causing a fistula.
