Purpose: This 36-month project will increase supports for women and girl victims of female genital mutilation (FGM) through coordinated intersectoral approaches. A needs assessment in six regions of Quebec will be carried out and results will inform the development of improved, coordinated practices. Stakeholders in the immigration, health and social services, and youth protection sectors will be engaged to improve prevention, intervention and on-going support for victims. The development of stakeholder protocols for targeted sectors will help sustain best practices. Lessons learned will be documented and widely disseminated to provide a continuum of interventions and facilitate their implementation outside Quebec to better respond to the specific needs of victims of FGM.
Comments: Multi-year project.
