Describe any restrictions or regulations regarding Healthcare communications in your country/region (imposed by healthcare regulatory bodies, government, TV stations, etc.)
The Egyptian Government passed legislation in 2008 that specifically prohibits FGM. In September 2016, a further amendment was made (by Law No. 126 of 2016) to the Penal Code, replacing Article 242-bis and adding Article 242-bis (A), upgrading FGM from a misdemeanor to a felony.
Describe the target audience
The medicalization of FGM in Egypt is a huge challenge with 78.4% of incidences carried out by health professionals. We want to raise awareness and target new parents. We want to educate them about the Impact of FGM, and convince them not to expose their daughters to this awful practice.
