The Western Cape Health MEC Theunis Botha says medical male circumcision is one of the successful measures in the prevention of HIV transmission.

Botha said that as a result, the Western Cape government during the month of October will be promoting male medical circumcision programme in various clinics.

The Departments`s Sithembiso Magubane said the Hanover Park, Heideveld and Mitchell's Plain Community Health Centres are actively promoting the elective male medical circumcision programme.

Magubane further said males between the ages of 15 and 49 may make an appointment at any one of these facilities to have the procedure done.

He added that this 30 minute procedure is performed by trained health care workers and holds many health advantages.
