VMMC Siyasoka

URC manages the Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) Service Delivery III Project (Siyasoka) to scale up VMMC services in South Africa.

The purpose of this activity is to provide direct service delivery to support high quality, high volume VMMC and related services in rural and urban areas of the country. Siyasoka draws upon the experience of the previous VMMC I and II projects, managed by the Right To Care Consortium in South Africa, and builds on URC's experience in implementing continuous quality improvement in VMMC services in over eight countries since 2012.

Working at fixed, outreach, and mobile VMMC sites in rural and urban priority districts, the Siyasoka project aims to reach 80% coverage of the target population in order to prevent new HIV infections. We will also work to coordinate the forecasting, procurement, quality assurance, distribution, and storage of VMMC surgical kits and commodities.

In addition to providing direct service delivery throughout the country, the project will also support the transition of direct VMMC service delivery to the South Africa Government National Department of Health (NDOH).
