The analysis of data on FGM seeks to highlight trends and patterns within the data and to inform policy, advocacy and programmatic efforts to contribute to the elimination of the practice. This study also examines
historical trends in the practice of FGM in Uganda, exploring how and why FGM is currently practised in eastern Uganda, and attempts to identify the risks and protective factors linked to the practice.
