There are no funded programs or services related to Female Genital Mutilation / Cutting (FGM/C) in the Northern Territory. Everybody’s Business Subcommittee (EBS) was founded in 2011 as part of the Refugee Health/Sexual and Reproductive Health Service initiative called “Everybody’s Business”. Despite limited capacity and resources, the EBS was able to conduct a series of one off FGM workshops for the Somali community in Darwin over 4 weeks in 2011. The workshops were conducted following requests by the Somali community for education on FGM. EBS has mapped all local NT services and resources regarding sexual and reproductive health for migrant and refugee communities, including the clinical and legal aspects of FGM/C, to be used as a resource for health and community service providers and relevant community members.
