VMMC Kit, Surgical Operation Circumcision

R1.00

Developed to assist programme implementers with the waste management challenges associated with VMMC programs, this toolkit contains guidance on the development of a waste management system to support VMMC services, standard operating procedures on waste disposal, and training tools for waste handlers and transporters. Based on South African National Standards, International Best Practice, and the SCMS Health Care Waste Management Model, this comprehensive set of tools provides guidance on building HCWM operational infrastructure, improves staff capacity, and aids stakeholders in managing the waste generated by VMMC campaigns. It is included in the PEPFAR guide to best practices for VMMC site operations.

Description

Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) Health Care Waste Management (HCWM) Toolkit

It is important to note that the PEPFAR VMMC TWG has developed standards for seven VMMC kits.
These kits have been standardized to allow economies of scale, accepted quality standards, and the possibility of
stocking kits in regional distribution centers to reduce lead time. The seven kits are:
– Single-use VMMC kit for forceps-guided procedure
– Single-use additional pack of metal instruments for dorsal slit/sleeve resection procedure (to be used with the
single use VMMC kit for forceps-guided procedure)
– Reusable set of metal instruments for forceps-guided procedure
– Reusable set of metal instruments for dorsal slit/sleeve resection procedure
– Essential consumable pack (to be used with reusable set of metal instruments for any surgical method)
– Single-use PrePex device kit
– Single-use VMMC kit for all surgical methods.
