Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
Percentage of girls and women aged 15-49 who have undergone FGM in Africa, the Middle East, and Indonesia
Notes: In Liberia, girls and women who have heard of the Sande society were asked whether they were members; this provides indirect information on FGM since it is performed during initiation into the society. Data for Indonesia refer to girls aged 0-11 years since prevalence data on FGM among girls and women aged 15 to 49 years is not available.
