Written by carol phiri on December 25, 2018
More than one million people have been circumcised through voluntary medical male circumcision in the country. The Director of HIV and TB programme in the Ministry of Health and Child Care Dr. Owen Mugurungi says the trajectory of circumcision is very pleasing as some districts have already surpassed their targets.
According to World Health Organisation Zimbabwe is now approaching its VMMC target of 80% which translates to 1.3 million men circumcised, and should now plan in earnest to continue providing the VMMC service in a way that maintains or exceeds the 80% coverage in a sustainable way.
