Crusading FGM doctor is honoured by Cameron
by Anna Davis
A junior doctor has received an award from David Cameron after helping to educate thousands of medical students about female genital mutilation.
Yvonne Obura put her career on hold as she spent a year visiting medical schools to highlight the scandal — subject of an Evening Standard campaign. She was inspired by a case in 2012 when an FGM victim arrived at the hospital where she was working in Slough.
Dr Obura, 26, was surprised so few doctors knew anything of the practice, which new figures show affects 137,000 girls and women in Britain.
