Welcome to United to END FGM (UEFGM)

United to END FGM (UEFGM) is a free-of-charge e-learning tool,
offering information and practical advice about
female genital mutilation (FGM).

Primarily designed for health and asylum service staff working in Europe, the course will also be of use to NGOs,
including women’s organisations and shelters. The UEFGM course has three main aims:

01To improve the support and treatment offered to women and girls in Europe living with or at risk of genital mutilation, by encouraging a more specialised gender- and culture-sensitive approach in the healthcare services.

02To strengthen the skills needed to maintain a high standard of decision-making in protecting FGM-affected and/or at-risk women and gi rls seeking asylum.

03To bring about the greater harmonisation of the European Asylum System, by highlighting relevant European and international treaties and legislation protecting FGM-affected and/or at-risk women and girls.
