This is a reminder that INTACT’s online discussion on “Medicalization of FGM/C: A curse or a blessing?” is taking place starting TODAY til August 15, 2011. The discussion is held in collaboration with UNFPA-UNICEF Joint programme on FGM/C. This global online forum is an opportunity to share experiences, challenges, and lessons learned, with colleagues who are experienced in the field of FGM/C with the aim of advancing knowledge and designing more effective program and interventions against FGM/C.
I am pleased to share with you a very informative document that Dr. Nafissatou J Diop, UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on FGM/C Coordinator, shared with us earlier http://www.intact-network.net/intact/cp/files/1285505590_74-%20Global%20Strategy%20to%20Stop%20Health-Care%20Providers%20from%20Performing.pdf
