Event Type

At the FGM/C Pre-Conference ahead of Women Deliver 2019 in Vancouver Canada, the organisations making up the Global Platform for Action to end FGM/C came together to plan a joint Pre-conference at the Women Deliver conference in June, in recognition of the imperative for us to work together – as civil society, donors and allies – to make FGM/C a practice of the past. This represented the first time that global FGM/C activists from Africa to Europe, from Australia to Asia and to North America came together to unite voices around a global call to action to end FGM/C.

The global and regional partnerships that were formed on that occasion have grown and strengthened their internal cooperation, working towards common advocacy goals at the regional and global levels respectively.

In 2023, we are coming together to celebrate the work done in the past years and to use the unique opportunity that Women Deliver provides to strengthen our global ties and create new ones. Because FGM/C is a global concern and we can only achieve its sustainable elimination if we work together.
