Several randomized clinical trials have proven that SMC prevents HIV transmission from females to males by 60%

Uganda developed SMC implementation guidelines for enrollment and scale up of SMC services

Uganda targets to circumcise 4.2 million (80%) adult males by 2015

Doctor patient ratio is about 1:24,000 (HRHA Report, 2012)

Scaling up SMC by Physicians to meet the target was challenging without task sharing and shifting.

M.O.H-Uganda guided the training and use of non physician surgeons ( clinical officers, Nurses) to carry out SMC
