SUSTAIN's Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Change Package
SUSTAIN provided technical assistance to 13 public hospitals to improve the quality of voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) services, and to increase uptake of VMMC services while reducing adverse events. SUSTAIN supported hospitals have focused on: a) ensuring circumcised clients return to the hospital for post-operative follow-up, and b) reducing adverse events among circumcised clients.
The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective interventions to improve voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) services in SUSTAIN-supported hospitals in Uganda.
This change package is part of a series of quality improvement change packages developed by the SUSTAIN project based on their work in Uganda. Other technical areas include: prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, laboratory, monitoring and evaluation, adolescent friendly health services, voluntary medical male circumcision, HIV care and treatment, nutrition, supply chain, tuberculosis, and quality improvement.
