This medical certificate can be used by women who apply for asylum in Belgium because they are at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM). It can also be used by parent(s) who claim that their daughter(s) run such a risk.
The CGRS has also put into place a follow-up procedure for families who received refugee status because of a fear of persecution based on the risk of FGM for their daughter(s). With this procedure, the CGRS sees to it that these girls are still protected after refugee status has been granted: every year, the parents of the girl(s) concerned have to send a medical certificate to the CGRS proving that their daughter has not been subjected to genital mutilation. You will find more information about the FGM follow-up procedure through the following link: https://www.cgrs.be/en/female-genital-mutilation.
