Uganda adopted SMC almost 8
Uganda adopted SMC almost 8 years ago and to date, over 3.5 million men have been circumcised mainly using surgical method. However, all sites providing SMC services had never been certified by Ministry of Health (MoH). Consequently, the MoH commissioner for Health services directed the National SMC Coordination Office to ensure that all SMC sites in Uganda were certified by the end of December 2017. Accordingly, the National SMC Coordination Office together with Implementing Partners developed and piloted an accreditation tool to assess the minimum requirements for a Health Facility to offer SMC services. In November 2017, MoH started assessing and certifying SMC sites in Uganda in collaboration with Implementing partners. As of December 31, 2017, the team had assessed 96 CDC supported SMC sites as reported by the IPs and the results of the assessment are as follows; 54 sites were fully certified, 15 sites were conditionally certified, 21 sites were not certified and 6 sites were not assessed.
MoH plans to conduct a follow up activity to re-assess CDC supported SMC sites that were not fully certified with a view of certifying all of them before 1st April 2018.
