Female circumcision and youth health care
Vrouwenbesnijdenis en jeugdgezondheidszorg.
This thesis reports a research conducted to examine the role of child health care doctors and nurses in detecting and preventing FGM. Through a purposive sample respondents were contacted during seminars on FGM, by mailing to health services, and through snow-ball sampling. this might have caused a bias in that respondents were likely to be interested in and knowledgeable about the topic already. Recommendations were made to increase knowledge and practice among child health care workers concerning FGM, to develop a protocol regarding detection of FGM, and establishing an information and expertise centre.
