Brief Description

A functional coordination mechanism:A coordination mechanism for FGM/C has been operationalized at national, regional and district levels. At the various levels, alliance meetings have been held to share good practices and make recommendations for issues which arise in the effort to accelerate the abandonment of FGM/C. The alliance meetings are composed of members from Government, Civil Society Organisations and Faith Based Organisations.  The strength of the alliances in intensifying efforts for the elimination of FGM/C lies in their multi-sectoral approach which encourages networking, avoids duplication and stipulates clearly defined roles and responsibilities for the various players.
