ABSTRACT

The aim of this project is to describe and analyze socio-cultural practices as determinants of female genital mutilation. The instrument used was structured questionnaire. 90 participants (adult women and men living in Igbesa Area of Ogun state) took part in the study. The data collected were analyzed using chi-square statistical method. The findings revealed that there is a significant relationship between social practices and the prevalence of female genital mutilation in Igbesa. It also revealed that there is a significant relationship between cultural practices and the prevalence of female genital mutilation. Another finding of the study showed that there was also a significant relationship between the level of knowledge of residents of Igbesa and the prevalence of female genital mutilation. Female genital mutilation has a significant impact on the health status of residents of Igbesa Area of Ogun state. It was concluded that healthy mutilated women, who did not suffer from grave long-term complications and have a good and fulfilling relationship, may enjoy sex. It was recommended that health personnel, both in private and public practice, should endeavor to step up their public health education against the health implications of female genital mutilation.
