Cellule de Coordination sur les Pratiques Traditionnelles Affectant la Santé des Femmes et des Enfants (CPTAFE)
Conakry, Guinea

CPTAFE was formed by volunteers in 1984 as a branch of the Inter African Committee on Traditional Practices affecting women's and children's health, particularly Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Since then, CPTAFE has evolved into an established national organization leading and coordinating the fight against FGM in Guinea. CPTAFE accomplishes this by spearheading campaigns at national and local levels for combating and eliminating FGM. CPTAFE’s activities include advocacy, awareness-raising, capacity building of grassroots organizations, and outreach.
