Hamlin Fistula Australia Limited (HFA) was established by Dr Catherine Hamlin, her family and friends in 1996. The generosity of donors has enabled HFA to provide funds for the massive expansion in the work of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital including the establishment of regional centres and the creation of the Hamlin College of Midwives.
There are funds similar to HFA in New Zealand, UK, USA, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and Japan.
From 1996 until mid 2012 HFA was the authorised representative in Australia of Dr Hamlin, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (HFE) and the Hamlin Fistula International Foundation (HFIF). In July 2012 Dr Hamlin established a new company in Australia called Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia) Limited (HFEA) and this new company now represents Dr Hamlin, HFE and HFIF in Australia.
