What is the FGM Coordination Office

The Austria-wide FGM Coordination Office offers advice, information and support on all issues related to female genital mutilation (FGM/C).

We are an association of the Women’s Health Center FEM South, MEN Men’s Health Center, the Austrian Red Cross and the Women’s Health Centers Linz and Salzburg. The goal of the FGM Coordination Office is to be a contact point for those seeking help, experts, professionals and communities and to network all actors with each other.

Our Offerings

The FGM Coordination Office offers free telephone counseling via an Austria-wide information line. Women who are affected or at risk, as well as professionals, experts or interested parties who need support or information on the topic of FGM/C, can contact the office.

In addition to the general information telephone, we also offer counseling directly on site. In Vienna, Graz, Innsbruck, Linz and Salzburg there are free contact points for people affected by violence and FGM/C and those at risk, which offer information, support and confidential individual counseling in medical, psychological and legal terms.
