An estimated 18% of FGM/C cases are being performed by professionally trained health workers.  This number has risen due to the widespread growth of knowledge about the possible health problems associated with FGM/C.  Families are now turning to health workers, feeling that their training will lessen the harm to the girls undergoing the procedure. This poster clearly states that health workers performing FGM/C are in violation of their basic promise to "do no harm."
