FROM THE FIELD: COVID-19 increasing risk of female genital mutilation

The COVID-19 pandemic is increasing the risk of female genital mutilation or FGM, with the UN predicting that an additional two million girls will be subjected to the practice in the next ten years.

The United Nations has called for collaboration at all levels, and across all sectors of  society, to protect millions of girls and women at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) every year.
