Background Adult HIV prevalence 13.7% MC prevalence 10.3% 750,000 HIV infections could be averted if 80% of males are circumcised Goal to circumcise 80% of year old males by 2015 (1.3 million) Policy only allows doctors to conduct MCs Completed 12 months pilot phase to test models of service delivery, 6500 males circumcised over 12 months High latent demand for MC
MOVE Components Forceps guided method Cost-effective, Safe, High outputs Diathermy for hemostasis Team of 2 doctors & 3 nurses serving 4 clients at one time Open plan operating room with several cubicles –Client flow –Quick movement between cubicles –Communication among team Disposable MC kits, hand scrub between clients

Next Steps Multi-country operational research to evaluate MC MOVE. Efficiency models used for expansion of MC services. Policy change towards task shifting of surgical components of MC to nurses.
