The report focuses on the experiences recorded in preventing, mitigating and responding to the increased risk of girls undergoing FGM during the pandemic. It also presents the achievements of the programme in 2020, which are key in setting the baseline for 2021 – the final year of Phase III of the Joint Programme.


The 2020 annual report is presented in a sequenced format featuring six sub-reports. The performance report in particular provides an analysis of the Joint Programme’s results including factors that contribute to programme achievements as well as approaches for addressing bottlenecks in the programme.
