UEFGM is a European project funded by the European Commission (DG Justice) whose overall aim is the creation of a web-based knowledge platform on FGM.

The web site integrates easily accessible and culturally appropriate information and support to professionals in order to:

  • deliver victim support more effectively,
  • help prevent FGM and protect women and girls living with/or at risk of FGM,
  • serve as a resource and education center on FGM

UEFGM is coordinated by the Cyprus University of Technology. 11 organizations in 8 countries participate in the project.

The website is available in 9 languages and has two main sections :

  • An e-learning course section with 13 thematic modules creating 7 learning streams
  • Specific pages for each of the 9 countries

GAMS Belgium works on 2 Health modules in UEFGM and, in cooperation with INTACT, is also responsible for the drafting and validation of the Belgium Country page.
