Abstract [sv]

Female genital mutilation is an ancient custom, practiced mainly in African countries. For several years, Africans has immigrated to Sweden and many of the women are genitally mutilated or circumcised. The aim of this study was to bring some clarity to the attitudes and experiences regarding female genital mutilation among those who are affected. Articles for this literature review were searched for in international databases, and in the university library database. The outcome of this study shows that health care staff is in need of greater knowledge about this custom, in order to be able to handle the situation appropriately. They don't always know how to act, and sometimes treat these women as objects on public display. To be aware of the importance of taking care of these women just as respectfully as you do with every other woman, is crucial for the outcome of the care situation.
