We strongly enjoin the public to go and get their first and/or second dose of Covid-19 vaccine. It is safe for every eligible person. Gender equality for sustainable economic growth and political strengthening: Women constitute about half of the population and their participation will enhance a gender balance as well as building vibrant democracies and policies that benefit all. Gender diversity in public institutions is particularly crucial, given that these decision-making bodies create the rules that affect people’s rights, behaviors and life choices. Let's support women inclusion in governance. Life's most persistent and urgent question is "WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR OTHERS?''....your support is of importance. International Women's Day (IWD) 2022 comes up on 8th of March with the theme: Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow. #BreakTheBias

Female Genital Mutilation

Home / Female Genital Mutilation

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision. It is a practice that involves altering or injuring the female genital for non-medical reasons. It is internationally recognized as a human right violation.

To this effect, HFDI like UNICEF and UNFPA also stood its ground to promote the abandonment of Female genital Mutilation (FGM) and put in place coordinated and systematic efforts in order to engage the communities in respect to human right and gender equality. Serious efforts were made on the empowerment of the communities to act collectively to end the practice. To make this done the midwives need to be engaged to end FGM.
