Abstract: Female circumcision in Somalia is a major public health problem that largely contributes to the ill-health of women and their children. Accordingly, the international community is committed to take all possible measures to abolish the practice. This study examines the attitudes toward the practice among people in Hargeisa, Somalia.
Gudniinka fircooniga ee Soomaaliya ka jira wuxuu dhibaato weyn ku hayaa caafimaadka haweenka iyo caruurtooda. Waxay beesha caalamku wadaa sidii lagu ciribtiri lahaa dhaqanka. Daraasaadkani wuxuu baarayaa sida dadweynaha Hargeysa ay u arkaan dhaqankan.
La circoncisione femminile in Somalia è un grave problema di salute pubblica che contribuisce in gran parte al cattivo stato di salute delle donne e dei loro bambini. La comunità internazionale si sta impegnando per l'eradicazione di questa pratica. Il presente studio indaga gli atteggiamenti nei confronti della pratica della popolazione di Hargeisa, Somalia.
