The main aim is to ensure improved health care for girls’ and women suffering from FGC-related health complications, and to prevent the mutilation of girls based in Norway, and to strengthen the competency among service providers and NGO as well as the network between services and user groups.

Of the more than 17 000 girls and women in Norway subjected to FGC, most have been cut prior to their immigration. It is therefore important to strengthen preventive work transnationally, and secure health care for those already affected.
