    Abstract

    REPLACE was a 12 month Daphne III funded project aiming to contribute to efforts to end Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) across the EU amongst practising communities. It was a pilot project which applied a health behaviour change approach, combined with participatory action research methods (PAR) to identify particular behaviours and attitudes, which contribute to the perpetuation of FGM within the EU. The EU Parliament in 2009 estimated that 500,000 women in the EU had been subjected to FGM, with a further 180,000 at risk. Despite being illegal across the EU, FGM is a trans-European problem. REPLACE aimed to supplement and/or ‘replace’ existing approaches to the ending of FGM with health behaviour change approaches to end the traditional harmful practice of FGM in the EU.
