Reviews

This course provides an excellent overall view of what is involved in FGM – its medical context and impacts, why some communities practice it, and what to do if you suspect a girl is likely to be cut (eg a teacher or health visitor). The content is well presented with diagrams and sensitive language throughout, and the exercises are helpful to ensuring understanding.
