This manual is meant for training programme managers to promote the abandonment of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C). It has been designed under a joint programme of the United Nations Population Fund and the United Nations Children’s Fund. The Joint Programme applies an innovative approach to FGM/C abandonment, using a social norms perspective to guide the selection of an appropriate mix of strategies and activities most conducive to self-sustained social change.
