Female Genital Mutilation Incidence Rates in Burkina Faso and Mali

2/2/16

Note: This chart shows FGM rates for girls born in a given year, not the overall rates for the countries, which remain higher. The precipitous decline in Mali and the near zero prevalence in Burkina Faso for girls born in recent years will not necessarily reflect a permanent change as the girls pass through the ages subject to FGM.
