Title [en]
Strategier för respektfull och jämlik vård för omskurna flickor och kvinnor
Abstract [en]
This collaboration presents a unique opportunity for migrant-receiving states; France, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain and Canada focusing on improving health outcomes for migrants and thus contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Given the variations in how countries address the prevention of FGC it is proposed:To gather knowledge, attitudes and practices of healthcare professionals towards FGC. Developed and implemented tools by partners in Spain and Sweden, based on knowledge on the experiences of women with FGC will be the basis to build these healthcare professionals’ capacities at facing situations involving FGC.To identify the extent to which current healthcare provider training packages incorporate the voices of women who have been subject to FGC for the development of more efficient, culturally safe and gender sensitive training tools.To compare and contrast predictive models of risk estimates across the partner countries. The RHCorFGC aims to use geographic mapping to better define the areas in which women and girls are more at risk of undergoing this procedure to prevent FGC and strengthen NGOs in selected areas.Better understanding of the best practices regarding policy implementations and legal frameworks with regards to the prevention of FGC.To develop and pilot-test an informative video to raise awareness both about women’s rights under the legislative framework surrounding FGC but also around healthcare professionals’ responsibilities.
