With interdisciplinary cooperation in the form of a supra-regional and central contact point, existing services and experiences can be bundled and expanded, expertise can be gathered and networking can be strengthened. In this way, the diverse needs of those affected and communities in the context of female genital mutilation can be reflected.

Through interdisciplinary and inter-organisational cooperation, the network and access to the communities can also be expanded and the information of the offer can be widely disseminated.

The aim is to model a supra-regional, central contact point in Baden-Württemberg for women and girls who are affected by and threatened with FGM/C.
