Our gynecologic surgery program focuses on training and equipping partner hospitals and physicians to provide gynecologic and pelvic reconstruction surgery for low-income Bolivian women, in particular those in their post-reproductive years whose needs are rarely prioritized.

The majority of women treated in recent years have sought help for urinary incontinence due to bladder prolapse. Others suffered from pelvic injuries attributable to multiple or unassisted difficult births. As part of our general efforts to promote less invasive options to treat common problems, Solidarity Bridge is the sole provider in Bolivia of endometrial ablation treatment to resolve abnormal bleeding for appropriate patients.
