The Hospital By The River, by Dr Catherine Hamlin (with John Little) is a candid account of 60 years of service to women in Ethiopia suffering from obstetric fistula. Dr Hamlin weaves her own story together with the history of the hospital and that of her adopted country, Ethiopia. 


The stories of the women treated by Drs Reg and Catherine Hamlin will bring tears, joy, sadness and admiration for the incredible commitment by the Hamlins and the staff of the Hamlin Fistula Hospital.  The book includes many family photos and others of historical interest. 


This 2016 edition features a foreword by Dame Quentin Bryce.
