This fact sheet aims to support United Nations Member States and all stakeholders to tailor and target their advocacy efforts within the Universal Periodic Review process towards eliminating female genital mutilation (FGM).

It takes stock, mid-course, of the dimensions of eliminating FGM that are prioritized by Member States through their recommendations at the UPR; assesses the substance of these recommendations in light of strategic programming evidence; and identifies priority actions for leveraging the UPR as a platform for change to eliminate this harmful practice by 2030.
