Albany Daily Star – August 26, 2016
After being delivered a message from UN General Ban Ki-moon on the International Day of Zero Intolerance to Female Genital Mutilation, Egypt’s Health Minister Ahmed Emad Eddine said that Egypt will celebrate the day as a day which conforms to the 2015-2030 national plans to end FGM. Although primarily concentrated in 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East, FGM is a global problem. At least 200 million women and girls in 30 countries now live with female genital mutilation, according to a new UNICEF report published in time for Saturday’s International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM, as the practice is often abbreviated.
