Project Example

Stand Proud, Get Circumcised

This was an initiative to provide safe male circumcision (SMC) as an essential health service. The initiative sought to increase the number of circumcised men by educating the population about safe male circumcision, increasing the number of health facilities that provide circumcision services and equipping health providers with the necessary skills to conduct the procedure.

The multi-channel the Safe Male Circumcision campaign was launched in late 2011 with the following objectives:

  • To create awareness and provide necessary information on safe male circumcision services
  • To help people make informed decisions about safe male circumcision and HIV prevention
  • To increase demand and promote uptake of SMC in Uganda
