What, Where and Why FGM/C Continues
Date and time: Friday, May 22, 2020, 4 to 5 pm East Africa Time (UTC+3)
Join the Population Council and our consortium of partners for two webinars this month where we will share findings from our research in eight African countries on female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) and discuss strategies to help end this harmful practice.
This is 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 medicalization, laws, social norms, variations of the practice, and prospects for abandonment. The webinars mark the end of a five-year program intended to expand the body of evidence on the most effective and cost-effective approaches to ending FGM/C in different contexts.
