The Presidentís Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Technical Working Group (VMMC TWG) assigned SCMS the task of leading the procurement and supply chain management of VMMC kits and supplementary commodities. 

Through consensus, the VMMC TWG partners have agreed upon kit components and supplementary commodities which enables SCMS to apply economies of scale to negotiate the lowest prices possible while maintaining the highest-quality product for the VMMC program.

These lead times are dictated by the manufacturer and are subject to change. SCMS will advise clients with a best estimate for delivery date shortly after an order is entered into the system.

Voluntary Medical Male  Circumcision Health Care Waste Management Toolkit

Due to the scale of VMMC programs, it will be essential to include medical waste management measures. It  is the responsibility of each country to plan for and implement waste  management protocols. SCMS has developed a Voluntary Medical  Male Circumcision Health Care Waste Management Toolkit to provide  guidance on implementing health care waste management (HCWM) best practices for  VMMC campaigns.


Basic VMMC Tool for VMMC and RTK Estimations

The basic VMMC  tool  is a macro-based Excel  application one can download to create basic VMMC and RTK estimations. The tool includes monitoring applications for target vs. actual number of procedures, consumption of commodities and end-of-month inventory of supplies. In addition, the tool includes automatic graphs for the monthly procedures comparison and the  consumption and inventory of disposable VMMC kits

Please Note: this tool is not supposed to replace forecasting and supply planning exercises in country.  For questions or comments regarding  this tool, please contact
