It draws upon numerous documents developed by UNAIDS/WHO and the PEPFAR VMMC Technical Working Group. This guide also builds on the experiences and materials from existing VMMC programs in southern and eastern Africa. The scope of this document is limited to establishing and supporting quality VMMC services for HIV prevention at the facility or VMMC site level. The necessary steps involved in scaling up VMMC services at the national, regional, and district levels are beyond the scope of this document.
