Council Clinics to Offer VMMC

POPULATION Services International Zimbabwe has come up with a proposal to ensure the Bulawayo City Council decentralises the Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) services to its clinics owing to the increase in uptake.

PSI Zimbabwe has been working in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the local authority to provide VMMC services at selected healthy facilities in the city.

“As Ministry of Health and Child Care moves into sustainability phase and increasing access, PSI Zimbabwe proposes to assist Bulawayo City Council Health Department to increase accessibility to Voluntary Medical (VMMC) services to its residents.

This will go a long way in averting new HIV infections in the city, and reduce the burden of HIV treatment to the City Health Department.
