Adverse Event Action Guide for VMMC by Surgery or Device


Prepared for voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) programmes, this guide is designed to provide guidance on safe and appropriate management of any complications associated with VMMC, standardised identification and grading of adverse events, and monitoring of VMMC programme safety and quality. It is intended for use by service providers who perform male circumcision procedures, as well as non-VMMC providers who perform post-circumcision client reviews. The second edition, first published in 2016 and distributed in hard copy, includes device-related AEs and multiple clinical updates from experiences with programme implementation experience. The most recent online-only update of this guide was published in November 2018; the latest revisions are documented in the update log.
