TB HIV Care continues to off voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), a procedure that reduces a man’s chance of contracting HIV by up to 60%, in partnership with the National Department of Health. Teams maintain a close relationship with the DOH and conduct procedures in DOH facilities through roving teams, as well as through fixed sites operated by partners.
Partnerships with private GP networks have been formalised to target a broader audience and we also work with traditional leaders and practioners in the Eastern Cape to provide medical male circumcision in the traditional male circumcision space.
TB HIV Care works closely with demand-creating partners to optimise the uptake of VMMC services. Community Media Trust and Careworks partner with TB HIV Care to deliver demand creation services.
