Project IQ created these three resources to help clients, providers, and assistants reduce the risk of infection, including infection causing tetanus, after voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC): a standard operating procedure (SOP) for skin preparation before VMMC, developed with input from the World Health Organization; a job aid to assist providers in following the SOP; and a handout for VMMC clients on steps they can take at home to prevent tetanus.
