Safe Male Circumcision

To support the scale up of safe male circumcision among HIV negative males aged 15-29 years to reach 27.2% (127, 000) of national target by 2014.

ACHAP has committed to support the Government of Botswana's efforts in scaling-up Safe Male Circumcision (SMC) services to reach the intended national target of 385,000 (0-49 years) by 2016.

ACHAP will directly contribute towards reaching the target of 127 000 (27.2%) of the national target among males aged 15-29 years. ACHAP's articulated support included two approaches; firstly supporting general government efforts in the scale up process.

Secondly by supporting implementation of a service delivery model that would facilitate rapid scale up of SMC in 14 districts over a period of five years.
