FGM has both long-term and short-term consequences that include death from haemorrhaging and pain; infections and trauma; decreased sexual pleasure and pain during intercourse; neonatal effects (depending on the type of FGM undergone); as well as other health and psychological disorders.

Despite these consequences, some parents have confirmed that they subjected their daughters to FGM, precisely because they had their children’s well-being in mind. They worry that their daughters would be a shame in the community, they would not be marriageable, they would invoke a curse that would affect the entire family, or even, that they would fall sick and die.

Esta chamada à apresentação de propostas é aberta a todos os países, ao abrigo do Instrumento Europeu para a Democracia e Direitos Humanos (EIDHR).
