Public Health: Female Circumcision Has No Place in Healthcare

On this Public Health episode, we explore female circumcision – more accurately referred to as female genital mutilation or cutting (FGM/C) – a harmful, traditional practice that is still widely carried out in Malaysia. We discuss the medicalisation of this practice, why it is harmful to girls and women, and what are the social and cultural barriers to ending the practice.
