Welcome to United to END FGM (UEFGM)
United to END FGM (UEFGM) is a free-of-charge
offering information and practical advice about
genital mutilation (FGM).
Primarily designed for health
and asylum service staff working in Europe, the course will also be of use to
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.
