Little evidence FGM performed in Australia

The authors of a survey of Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RANZCOG) members said there were no reports of women presenting to hospitals with complications.

“It seems reasonable to infer that very few, if any, FGM/cutting procedures are being performed here,” the authors, from the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, said.

However, they said anecdotal evidence suggested it may be occurring and being performed “by people other than registered health practitioners”.
