MCWH held our third NETFA Forum, Foundations for Change, on the 24th March and we are still buzzing with the conversations, ideas and strategies that were presented and discussed when we talk about how to end the practice of female genital mutilation/ circumcision (FGM/C). We thank all our special guests and audience members for their contribution and we hope the key messages that we took away from the event help to inform your work in the area.
We are also pleased with the recent release of Victoria’s first ever sexual and reproductive health strategy and priority action plan, which shows that we are on the right path to recognising the importance of sexual and reproductive health rights for all Australian women and also pleasing to see recognition of the barriers to healthcare that need to be further broken down for our culturally and linguistically diverse female population.
Last but not least, we chat to Shegofa Hazara about the importance of education and grabbing opportunities where you see them!
Until next time,
The WRAP Team
