The VMMC clinic was launched at the Airport Mall in Belhar as a joint initiative by the Department of Health with international, non-profit health organisation Jphiego yesterday.
Levitt was first in line to be treated by the staff of the VMMC and said he was ready to be circumcised.
“I have always wanted to have this done and I know that this will help me against getting STIs or HIV. I had to wait a few more minutes because my blood pressure was a bit high, but I am still going to be first to have this done today (yesterday),” he said.
The VMMC runs together with the Man Up national awareness campaign, which encourages young men from as young as 15 to volunteer for medical male circumcision - at no cost - because of its health benefits.
