Fact Sheet: FGM in the United Republic of Tanzania

UNFPA Tanzania is committed to accelerating the abandonment of female genital mutilation (FGM) in Tanzania and delivering on the global goal of zero FGM by 2030.  

Our approach is diverse: we work at the policy level supporting government through the National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children and with communities through our partners.

Our focus is on regions where FGM prevalence is high. We also support regional initiatives to strengthen and coordinate the response to cross-border FGM.
