Lidership of the project “Prevention of Female Genital Mutilation and attention of its health consequences” financed by
“la Caixa” Foundation

Launched in November 2015, the project has contributed to the eradication of FGM and the improvement of women and girls health conditions (coming from sub-Saharan countries and living in Spain). The trainings to professionals in the health, social, legal and educational areas of Catalonia (Mataró, Salt, Terrassa and Barcelona) have promoted the prevention of FGM and the attention to its health consequences. The workshops organized with men, women and youth and the constant assessment to trained professionals have promoted the prevention on FGM in the communities, the respectful deconstruction of the reasons why it is practiced and the properly detection and attention to its consequences.
