The declining rate of men enrolling for the Safe Male Circumcision SMC is said to be worrisome.
Addressing a new directions global health workshop in Gaborone yesterday, the Gaborone DHTM representative, Dr. Martin Azama, said that they have a target of 5 thousand 305 men to be circumcised in the period of 2016-2017, but have however only achieved circumcising 868 men.
Dr Azama further urged men to come forth and be circumcised as the exercise is aimed at reducing the rising rate of sexually transmitted infections in Botswana
