Series of online workshops on the rights and health of girls and teenagers affected by FGM
Starting from December 2020 and going through 2021, the Concerted Strategies for Fighting FGM and GAMS Belgium have been hosting several online workshops for professionals in contact with families affected by FGM in Belgium.
A large panel of professionals have been invited to share their medical, psychological, sociocultural and community expertise on the different topics as well as their ethical reflections on several topics:
- How to address the issue of FGM with children in individual consultations?
- Follow-up of refugee girls and teenagers on the issue of excision: an opportunity?
- Addressing the issue of menstruation with children from 9 years old
- The psychosexual development of the child and FGM
The workshops have been rich in exchanges and were found to be instructive for frontline professionals in Belgium.
This series was organised in French, online. They have been recorded and made available on the website of the Concerted Strategies for Fighting FGM:
