Doctors to examine men’s genitals in Nyanza in study on voluntary male cut


The Ministry of Health has started a survey on Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) in Nyanza to help tackle the HIV/Aids pandemic.
The study seeks to determine the number of circumcised men in Kisumu, Homa Bay, Siaya and Migori Counties.
The project was launched in Homa Bay Town by county chief officer for health Gerald Akeche and director Gordon Okomo.
Its purpose is to help curb the spread of HIV in Nyanza, which had the highest prevalence rates at over 20 per cent per county.
Dr Akeche said the survey, funded by the US government and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), will help in determining what resources to invest in the fight against the disease.
