The act framework: Towards a new M&E model for measuring social norms change around FGM
The UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is pleased to announce the creation of a new framework for measuring and tracking changes in social norms related to FGM. The ACT Framework, developed in partnership with Drexel University’s Dornsife School of Public Health, in consultation with experts around the world, is being validated in two countries (Guinea and Ethiopia), and will provide programme planners with new practical resources for measuring and tracking changes in social norms related to FGM. While this document provides a summary of the framework, a revised full version will be published in 2020 following completion of a validation process in two countries.
