ACCAF was formally established in 2012 as a trans-disciplinary, both in approach and personnel to champion efforts and address the gaps in abandonment of FGM/C in the Africa region within one generation. The Centre is hosted by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at the University of Nairobi with the overall aim of strengthening capacity in the region for research, implement interventions and monitor progress in accelerating efforts towards the abandonment of FGM/C and improved care for women and children suffering negative consequences of the practice.

During 2011 international conference hosted by the Centre, it was mandated to coordinate research, training/capacity building, dissemination of evidence based practices and strategies for abandonment of FGM, influence policy and behavior change.

A Resource/Coordination Centre in Africa could help to stimulate and facilitate the situation for many who feel alone in their work in their own institutions and countries, providing support of various kinds and opportunities for capacity building. Strengthening capacity in Africa for producing evidence, improving care, implementing interventions and monitoring progress is the key to hastening abandonment efforts.
