Medicalisation of FGM, i.e when FGM is practiced by healthcare providers, is a widespread reality in many communities where FGM is prevalent. The Population Council’s report from February 2017 estimated that this practice concerns 26% of women having suffered from an FGM – a total of 16 millions women and girls !
Today we are happy to launch a thematic discussion within the Community of Practice on FGM on this important theme.
We invite everyone interested in participating in the debate to read this note with information and questions for the debate, available in English and French of course!
