The WHO FGM Cost Calculator 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.

Start by choosing a country of interest from the interactive map below or the dropdown menu. Once you select a country, you MUST click on the ‘Calculate’ button in order for the visualizations to appear. In the ‘Parameters’ dropdown menu allows you to adjust epidemiological metrics, prevention intervention effectiveness, and included costs (listed).

Country level results of the cost calculator outputs are available as country fact sheets. These can be accessed using the "Fact sheets" tab in the navigation menu.
