National Medical Male Circumcision Training Implementation Guidelines

The National Department of Health (NDOH) is committed to the up-scaling of Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) services as an HIV preventative measure through collaborative partnerships. In 2010, the National VMMC program was rolled out to circumcise 80% of HIV negative men (4.3M) by 2016. A new target of an additional 2.5M by 2022 has been set. To date, SA has conducted more than 4.2M MMCs. The training of healthcare workers has to be cascaded across all Districts in order to meet the targets and more importantly to ensure that MMC procedures are performed according to the national guidelines and standards, where patient safety is a priority. These training implementation guideline consist of the four strategic objectives below:

  1. To ensure the provision of high quality, standardised VMMC training
  2. Capacity building in collaboration with the Regional Training Centres (RTC)
  3. To provide mentoring and support in addition to skills acquisition, to ensure competency
  4. Sustained expertise in the provision of safe VMMC services
