WIC News December 2003 / January 2004

First of all the Management and Staff of the Women’s Information Centre would like to take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous New Year. The highlight in this bulletin is the issue on Fistula sufferers to get free treatment to be found on page 5. In the section ISSUES we are presenting 2 articles, the first one about the launching of a video documentary on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) by the Deputy Minister for Community Development, Gender and Children, Hon. Shamim P. Khan (MP) at the British Council; the second one about a call made by Dr. Joseph Amuzu, Programme Officer of the Commonwealth Secretariat, to communities to make the socialization process more gender sensitive in order to push men to take responsibility in HIV/AIDS prevention.
