A Surge in FGM in Northern Ghana Amid COVID - News Summed Up

A Surge in FGM in Northern Ghana Amid COVID


Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is ostensibly the removal of female organs for cultural reasons. Ghana's government outlawed female circumcision in 1994; however, it is still being practiced in some parts of Northern Ghana. Studies have pegged the prevalence of FGM in Ghana at 4%. This reporting project will thus highlight the surge of FGM during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the experiences and complications of FGM survivors. It will also seek to proffer viable suggestions on reducing the prevalence of FGM and possibly ending its prevalence in Northern Ghana.
