UNFPA’s FGM programme engages with relevant government ministries and NGOs to adopt a rights-based approach to end FGM.

Mara is one of the priority regions for UNFPA’s FGM programme.  UNFPA has worked with key duty bearers including the legal sector and the police to strengthen their capacity to respond to FGM as well as with communities and the media to raise awareness of FGM.  

This publication provides an overview of successful strategies that have been implemented since July 2012.
