Health trust launches FGM web app


Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has announced the ‘Let’s talk FGM’ (a resource to support discussion on female genital mutilation) is now available as a web app. This means that it can be accessed from any browser on a smart phone, tablet or PC. The trust hopes people will find the new version more informative, accessible and user friendly.

 This work was enabled by a generous contribution of £20,000 from the Oxford Health Charity.

 As with the previous version, the development of a web version was a collaborative project between Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the campaign group Oxford Against Cutting and digital agency White October. The original project was developed from a Mary Seacole Award in 2015-16 funded by Health Education England.

 The new version also includes improvements based on feedback on the first version of the ‘Let’s talk FGM’.

 Improvements include:

 ·         Arabic and French audio clip translations of key sections

·         Updated information

·         A new ‘Men speak out against FGM’ video

·         A UK county section

·         Detailed map

 Go to Let’s talk FGM  for the web-app and save to your favourites

 The original iPad app ‘Let’s talk FGM’ (off-line) is still available and will be updated to incorporate the changes in January.
