WEBINAR PRESENTATION

Community Conversations: An Introduction to Female Genital Cutting (FGC)

BRYCS' Community Conversations project aims to reduce the risk and improve the care of women and girls affected by FGC, particularly among refugee communities. BRYCS Consultant, Jenny Siegel, discusses the cultural roots, health consequences and risk factors of FGC. We will also share the impacted community's concerns and needs related to FGC, especially in their interactions with community providers (i.e. medical practitioners, resettlement staff, family members).
