Female Genital Mutilation Cost Calculator

The WHO FGM Cost Calculator has two primary functions. It estimates the current and projected financial health care costs associated with FGM in specific countries, as well as the potential cost savings to health systems of reducing new cases of FGM.

The user starts by choosing a country of interest from the interactive map. Once a country is selected the user clicks on ‘Calculate’ in order for the visualizations to appear. The ‘Parameters’ menu allows the user to adjust epidemiological metrics, prevention intervention effectiveness, and included costs.
