TTI Awarded CDC Contract to Design Study on FGM

TTI was awarded a contract to conduct background research, report progress to partners and stakeholders, and to produce a study design report that assesses the possible scientific and technical approaches for an FGM/C Prevalence Study in the US, and assist in the design of a pilot study to test proposed study design and content for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Reproductive Health (DRH).

TTI’s work will include reviewing data and background materials on FGM/C, defining parameters of a prevalence study (e.g., study site locations, survey instrument content areas, strength and weaknesses of potential designs and methods), and presenting a study proposal to an expert panel for panel feedback. The work also includes producing a pilot study design and implementation plan.
