The ministry of health has acquired vasectomy equipment aimed at encouraging men to undergo surgery in order to curb high population growth in the country.

“The vasectomy equipment has been purchased and the programme to involve men in family planning is to start soon and health workers are going to be trained on how to use the equipment so that men will have chance to participate in reproductive health,” Dr. Collins Tusingwire the assistant commissioner for reproductive health in the ministry of health said.

Tusingiwre was addressing reproductive health service providers during the handover of 20 cry therapy equipment meant for cervical cancer screening to 20 health service providers at Ridar Hotel in Mukono district on Tuesday.
