  • 5 Facts on Female Genital Mutilation

    Key facts:

    Female genital mutilation (FGM) includes procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

    The procedure has no health benefits for girls and women.

    Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, infertility as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths.

    FGM is mostly carried out on young girls sometime between infancy and age 15.

    FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women.
