Male Medical Circumcision
Shout-It-Now recently partnered with the Winnie Mandela Clinic in Thembisa (Ekhureleni, Johannesburg) to promote male medical circumcision (MMC) as a viable way to reduce HIV transmission. MMC has proven to reduce the risk of HIV transmission by up to 60%. The Winnie Mandela Clinic was opened by the Aurum Institute in September 2011 and aims to provide the MMC services to men above the age of 15 years.
Our technology interface includes a video of South African comedian Kagiso Lediga providing candid and detailed information about MMC. This has helped deliver a message that clients can directly relate to and takes a little of the sting out of what can be a difficult topic to raise with men. Our involvement in promoting MMC, is a call for men to stand up and take responsibility for reducing the risk of HIV infection.
