FGMReview is a Knowledge Management Tool that aims at collecting and organizing all the information published on traditional Female Genital Modification (tFGMo) practices. The goal of FGMReview is to help improving and increasing the knowledge on all types of tFGMo, including female genital cutting/mutilation, by making all grey literature and evidence-based knowledge accessible to researchers, health and social science students, sexual and reproductive health programmes managers, health policy makers, and healthcare providers engaged in the research, project and programme planning, and healthcare and socialcare provision of tFGMo.
Searching through FGMReview, the visitor can find information on events (congresses, conferences, lectures, celebrations…), resources (original research papers, clinical guidelines, eBooks, PhD Thesis…) and agents (organisations, universities, scientific journals, governments…). We aim for FGMReview to serve as a collaborative tool with its readers. In order to achieve a goal that will benefit everybody, all your suggestions are welcome. You can send us an eMAIL to let us know about new resources to post.
FGMReview was first launched in 2012. The database received the support of the Research Group on Female Harmful Practices of the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Saragossa (Spain). The content of this site is managed by Guillermo Martínez Pérez, PhD, President of AfWORO.
At the start, FGMReview was framed in the preparation of a PhD Thesis Dissertation on the health implications of the practice of labia minora elongation. To help the readers become more familiar with this specific type of tFGMo, all the entries that relate to labial elongation include this image displayed next to the text. When clicked, all the documents which refer to this practice are shown.
Thank you for visiting FGMReview!
