Résumé/Extrait :

Female genital mutilation (FGM), also called female genital cutting (FGC), is a reproductive health and human rights concern, with devastating short- and long-term impacts on the lives of women and girls. The procedure is risky and life-threatening for the girl undergoing the procedure and throughout the course of her life. This practice touches every aspect of the mandate of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), including reproductive health and rights, gender equality and women’s empowerment as well as adolescent reproductive health. However, UNFPA addresses the practice not only because it has a harmful impact on the reproductive and sexual health of women and girls but also because it is a violation of their fundamental human rights. The basis for a rights approach is the affi rmation that human well-being and health is infl uenced by the way a person is valued, respected and given the choice to decide on the direction of her/his life without discrimination, coercion or neglect.
