Responding to female genital mutilation: multi-agency guidance
A framework for agencies and practitioners to develop and agree processes that promote the safety and wellbeing of women and girls.
Appendix 3: Countries where FGM is practised
FGM/C is concentrated in a swathe of countries from the Atlantic coast to the Horn of Africa
Note: In Liberia, girls and women who have heard of the Sande society were asked whether they were members; this provides indirect information on FGM/C since it is performed during initiation into the society.
