Supplementary notes

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is defined as the partial or total removal of external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for reasons that are non-medical. It is considered a violation of the human rights of girls and women.

The source explains that this statistic shows the prevalence of FGM among women between the ages of 15 and 49 years and the type of procedure. It adds that "the practice is mostly carried out by traditional circumcisers, who often play other central roles in communities, such as traditional childbirth attendants".
