BRYCS Consultant, Jenny Siegel, discusses the cultural roots, health consequences and risk factors of FGC. She also shares the impacted community’s concerns and needs related to FGC, especially in their interactions with community providers (i.e. medical practitioners, resettlement staff, family members).
