From: Global Health eLearning Center

Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C)

A violation of women’s fundamental human rights, the practice of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) endangers the physical, psychological, reproductive, and sexual health of women.

This course sheds light on FGM/C, its global prevalence rates, and related socio-economic factors such as age, generational trends, mother's education, place of residence, religion, ethnicity, and household wealth. 

Course content was adapted from USAID's Global Health eLearning Center, which is managed by the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project, led by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Communication Programs (CCP).
