2015-10-01 06:00

PORT SHEPSTONE Regional Hospital invites males from the age of 14 and older for medical circum-cisions.

The campaign starts on 3 October and the procedure is free.

Hospital spokesperson Phumza Morai said the circumcision process is a means of reducing the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections.

Morai ensures that all safety precautions will be taken.

“We take necessary precautions to ensure the safety of all clients. The procedure is performed by health-care professionals who are specifically trained to perform circumcisions.”

Males attending this campaign will be educated on men’s sexual health and correct wound care before the procedure is done.

Those who come for the procedure will be given lunch.

Males aged 14 to 17 must come with their parents or guardians to sign the consent form for the procedure to be done.
