Baylor-Uganda continues to provide Safe Male Circumcision services as part of the HIV prevention package. In line with the PEPFAR priorities, SMC was scaled down from the 8 districts of West Nile and restricted to the scale-up district of Nebbi until March 2016 when the West Nile arm of the comprehensive HIV/ AIDS EWN project ended. Similarly, there was cessation of SMC services in the 6 districts of TESO sub-region with continuation of services being maintained in the high priority districts of Soroti and Katakwi. Starting April 2016, Baylor-Uganda extended Safe Male Circumcision services to four new districts of Kabarole, Kamwenge, Kyenjojo, and Ntoroko in the Rwenzori region under the SNAPS project. Following the new Ministry of health guidelines, Tetanus Toxoid Vaccination was adopted in the SMC program to avert potential tetanus infection. SMC clients first receive 2 doses of TT vaccine 28 days before circumcision is done. 61,426 clients were reached with SMC & HCT services and 33 health workers were trained in offering quality SMC services.
