Start-up and Technical Assistance:

CHAPS is the only National Technical Assistance (TA) provider to all agencies involved in voluntary medical male circumcision in South Africa that guides and consults NGO’s, government entities and private partners on how to set up and manage cost-effective voluntary medical male circumcision services.

In addition, CHAPS has developed a new VMMC GP Programme that actively involves the private sector. The GP programme expands into all 9 provinces and provides an array of opportunities for General Practitioners interested in developing their own VMMC services. The aim of the new and innovative programme is to establish a larger pool of service delivery providers by actively engaging, training and mentoring private sector healthcare providers to offer high quality HIV prevention and VMMC services
