The "détectomètre"

The détectomètre is designed for professionals. It aims to establish a referral protocol, help identify the actions to be taken to protect girls and ensure follow-up of a girl who has already been circumcised and of her sisters at risk of being circumcised, in dialogue, if possible, with the parents and the child.

I want to undergo training

GAMS Belgium invests in training for professionals in contact with people affected by FGM, in various sectors: social, health, education, asylum, police and early childhood.

Multidisciplinary care

The two multidisciplinary hospital centres in Belgium provide holistic care for women and girls who have undergone female genital mutilation.
