I am pleased to invite you to a webinar to commemorate International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation:


An Investment Case to End Female Genital Mutilation

The webinar will bring together global stakeholders and experts to discuss the economic burden of FGM and the urgent action needed to achieve Sustainable Development Goal target 5.3 on the abandonment of FGM.

The webinar will coincide with the publication of the “Economic Burden of Female Genital Mutilation in 27 High-Prevalence Countries” by BMJ Global Health, a study, conducted by WHO, in collaboration with Triangulate Health Ltd.
