A model for FGM/C Community Education in Victoria

The Victorian FGM/C program, the Family and Reproductive Rights Education Program (FARREP), is under review. The aim of the review is to address a range of changes and challenges that have been identified over the 13 years of the program’s implementation.

MCWH commends the Department of Health’s commitment to FGM/C education and community engagement, and anticipates that the review outcomes will build the capacity of the program to better respond to the needs of women affected by FGM/C, their families and communities.

This is what we believe an effective and community-led FGM/C health promotion program will look like. Let us know what you think.
