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.

process, please contact Juan Jaramillo, Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ashley Canchola, VMMC Logistics Advisor, at email@example.com.

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
