What are the risks of female genital mutilation?

Health workers say that the operation is often carried out in unsanitary and so potentially dangerous conditions . Razor blades, scissors, kitchen knives and even pieces of glass are used, often on more than one girl, which increases the risk of infection. Anesthesia is rarely used. Some girls die as a result of hemorrhaging, septicemia and shock. Infections and scarring can also lead to long-term urinary and reproductive problems.

What is the future?

Due to health campaigns, female circumcision has been falling in some countries in the last decade. Several international organization such as the World Health Organization and the United Nations are actively working to stop the practice, and an increasing number of countries have outlawed it.

In Kenya, a 1991 survey found that 78 per cent of teenagers had been circumcised, compared to 100 per cent of women over 50. In Sudan, the practice dropped by 10 per cent between 1981 and 1990.

Several governments have introduced legislation to ensure the process is only carried out in hospitals by trained doctors.
