Safe, affordable and timely treatment should be a standard of care for anyone in the world born with bladder exstrophy. It is not. A-BE-C is working with others to change that.
Did You Know?
In many parts of the world children born with exstrophy are left untreated, or an attempted repair is unsuccessful, resulting in a lifetime of pain and suffering.
Patients in resource poor countries face additional challenges including lack of access to trained personnel to manage postoperative care.
Making a Difference
A-BE-C has established an annual workshop to train healthcare workers outside the US in the various techniques and procedures to treat bladder exstrophy.
