Job Description


Email: slnma.org@gmail.com website: slnma.org Phone No 063-4185300                          Terms of Reference: Referral mechanism for FGM champions and trained health workers in Somaliland


     In Somaliland an estimated 99% of girls and women aged 15 – 19 years have undergone FGM/C (female genital mutilation/cutting), 85% of which have experienced the most severe form. The issue is hugely sensitive and taboo, is not discussed in public, and is deeply entrenched in social norms around the position of girls and women in society, their sexuality, and dominant patriarchal and religious beliefs that are upheld by all sections of society. The UNFPA/UNICEF joint programmer on FGM aims to promote behavior change to end FGM through inter-related interventions which include legislative advocacy, community mobilization, media campaign and mobilizing health professional and communities to abandon FGM.

     SLNMA is seeking a consultant(s) to develop and support the operations of referral mechanism for FGM champions and trained health workers in Somaliland
