The US Centre for Disease Control says it has had the least success in the Western Cape in the uptake of voluntary medical male circumcision in the past decade. The centre has taken its voluntary male circumcision campaign to Belhar. It is a partnership with the global NPO, Jhpiego and the Health Department. It consists of a mobile clinic, equipped to perform up to 40 circumcisions daily as a free service to disadvantaged communities.US Centre for Disease Control Country Director, Dr Amy Herman-Roloff, explains:” To be really honest we had the least amount of success in the Western Cape, and specifically in Cape Town, and so I am really excited about the mobile unit because it really does two things. It brings quality services to the community where we can use events like these to generate interest and demand and procuring the service, and bringing services where people connect with them.” Experts say circumcision reduces the risk of HIV infection by at least 60 percent.
