The International Journal of Obstetric Trauma (IJOTR) is a journal published by The International Society of Obstetric Fistula Surgeons (ISOFS), a Public non-governmental organisation with interest in ending the Fistula problems, especially in Asia and Africa. With this repository, ISOFS aims to preserve rich research results of intellectual Health communities that advance knowledge in Fistula health and other related problems associated with it. The International Journal of Obstetric Trauma (IJOTR) is currently being funded by members through Membership dues, Workshops, Seminars and donations. The IJOTR is not a profit making organisation and so, this necessitates the need for only articles handling fees to be paid for all articles published in IJOTR. We do not charge publication fees
