The Population Council and partners will be sharing their findings from research in eight African countries on female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) and discussing strategies to help end this harmful practice.
This is the first part of a two-part webinar series intended for practitioners, researchers, donors and implementers and will cover a range of evidence and implications on topics such as medicalisation, laws, social norms, variations of the practice, and prospects for abandonment. The webinars mark the end of a five-year programme intended to expand the body of evidence on the most effective and cost-effective approaches to ending FGM/C in different contexts.
