Medical Male Circumcision (MMC)

Right to Care from Helen Joseph Hospital utilizes Witkoppen Health and Welfare Centre facilities to provide this service. This clinic is available on Saturdays once a month and more frequently during the winter months, especially July school holidays. Clients need to know their HIV status before the procedure, and counselling and testing is provided. Men who are already diagnosed as HIV positive need their latest CD4 count result before a circumcision will be performed.

MMC is provided for all males 15 years or older. This service is free of charge and there is a follow up visit on a Monday at the Centre.
