28 Too Many is a values based charity working to end female genital mutilation (FGM). Our primary focus is on research and enabling local initiatives to end FGM in the 28 African countries where it is practised and across the diaspora.
Recently, we published a report on The Medicalisation of FGM. Despite much progress towards ending FGM in recent years, the number of cases recorded worldwide annually is still staggeringly high. Equally worrying though, is the increase in the number of health professionals who are carrying out FGM procedures: the 'medicalisation of FGM'.
