The National Protocol on the Management of Complications from Female Genital Mutilation was developed by the Division of Gender, Adolescent/ School Health and Care of Elderly (GASHE) of the Department of Family Health, Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) with technical support from the UNFPA–UNICEF Joint Programme on Female Genital Mutilation: Accelerating Change. This protocol would not have been completed without the valuable contributions of all the stakeholders that participated in the drafting of this document. These include the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs, State Ministries of Health and State Primary Health Care Development Boards. We appreciate the efforts of the Centre for Population and Reproductive Health (CPRH) and the contributions of the relevant health regulatory and professional bodies, namely, Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Nigeria (SOGON), Nurses and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN).
