Male circumcision quality assurance guide
A guide to enhancing the safety and quality of services
This guide has been developed to assist national and district programme and health facility managers and providers to establish and implement male circumcision services that meet an internationally agreed level of safety and quality.
It provides programme managers with information aimed at helping them to fulfil their roles and responsibilities in organizing male circumcision services that are safe and effective. It can be used to support the establishment of services in various circumstances, e.g. health centres, hospitals, mobile units, temporary sites or when a centre of excellence is being created.
The guide is complemented by the Male circumcision quality assessment toolkit, a practical set of tools for assisting facility managers and providers to assess their own performance and the quality of care provided and to define gaps that exist in the provision of male circumcision services. The tools also can be used by national and district managers to conduct external assessments of facilities.
