FGM/C programs in Victoria

Family and Reproductive Rights Program (FARREP)

Founded in 1995, the FARREP Program employs a regional model of service delivery channelled through organisations across Victoria in order to cover different regions. While FARREP Programs are independently run within each lead organisation, all programs use bilingual health workers and community workers to provide education and activities to raise awareness about Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) across a wide range of communities, ages and situations. FARREP workers also provide consultation, education and training for service providers, offer referrals and support for women directly affected by FGM/C, and undertake specific projects in partnership with relevant organisations (eg. schools, research organisations, etc.) Both Mercy Hospital and Royal Women’s Hospital have a FARREP Program, and at the Royal Women’s, clinical services are now explicitly available to women affected by FGM/C through the African Women's Clinic, established in 2010.
