Family Reproductive Rights Education Program (FARREP)

  • FARREP is a program for women who come from cultures where female circumcision is sometimes practised. The FARREP worker at Mercy Hospital for Women provides support for women who have been circumcised and assists women in liaising with the hospital staff. The FARREP worker can also provide relevant health information to individuals and groups, both within the hospital and in the community.

  • Our FARREP worker also provides education for health professionals working with communities that practise female circumcision.

  • For more information contact our FARREP worker on 03 8458 4150 or via email
