Author: UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on Female Genital Mutilation

As the largest global programme addressing FGM, the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting: Accelerating Change plays a critical role in achieving Sustainable Development Goal target 5.3, calling for the elimination of all harmful practices by 2030. 
 
A companion booklet to How to Transform a Social Norm, Performance Analysis for Phase II outlines the key results achieved during this phase of the Joint Programme (2014-2017). It analyses progress in quantitative terms, pointing to the positive difference the programme has made in galvanizing support for the elimination of FGM: more than 24.6 million individuals made public declarations of FGM abandonment, some 3.3 million women and girls accessed prevention, protection and care services across 16 countries, and 13 countries have laws banning FGM, with similar laws pending in three more countries.

This progress demonstrates the sustainability of the Joint Programme's interventions.
