Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting National Education Toolkit in Australia
The National Education Toolkit for Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting Awareness

Who carries out the practice?

FGM/C is a tradition which is passed down and performed by women, who do not usually have any medical training. In these cases, instruments used to perform FGM/C are often unsterilised and no anaesthetic is used. In some countries, such as Sudan and Egypt, the practice can be performed in private clinics by doctors and nurses.
