Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision In-Service Communication Best Practices Guide
The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief’s (PEPFAR’s) Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) Technical Working Group(TWG) identified the need for a counseling reference guide during external quality assurance assessments conducted in several priority countries in 2013-2014. These assessments revealed inconsistencies in core content and key messages communicated to clients. The Communication Sub-Group (CSG) later confirmed the need for this guide by conducting a review of in-service communication (ISC) materials. A total of 37 communication materials used in nine countries, including training guides and job aides for group education and individual counseling, were reviewed as a purposive sample to gauge key topics covered in ISC/counseling activities across the VMMC service continuum.
