MAUN: The Ministry of Health launched an accelerated six-month Safe Male Circumcision (SMC) national campaign at the Maun Sports Complex on Monday.

The campaign, which was officially launched by the Minister of Health, Dorcas Makgato was held amid pomp under the theme ‘Rola Kepese, Circumcise Now’.  The campaign strives to achieve a total of 35,000 male circumcisions throughout the country.

Makgato said the accelerated campaign would help increase the number of circumcised men.  She also called on them to heed the message and come in bigger numbers to get circumcised.
