Darbon Institute Expert Advisory Board member Dr Olayide Ogunsiji is quoted in an article by Michael West Media's Tasha May, about the possibility Medicare is funding FGM in Australia.
Medicare data appears to indicate some doctors are performing female 'circumcisions', otherwise known as female genital mutilation, which is criminalised in every Australian state and territory.
Dr Ogunsiji believes “it goes beyond a coding error”.
“[The Department of Health] should provide assurance that they have investigated it, found out it’s an error, withdrawn wrong statistics and put up the right ones. Otherwise, it is not acceptable they they say it’s a coding error.” Dr Ogunsiji said.
