Abstract

Medical male circumcisions have been scaled-up for HIV prevention. Three 16-year-old clients were diagnosed with Haemophilia post-VMMC services. Greater emphasis on advocacy, training and placement of qualified health care workers for peri-operative screening and a high index of suspicion for pre-operative diagnosis and appropriate referral for bleeding disorders is essential.
