The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (Sactwu) has circumcised 100 000 men, over the past year, as part of its HIV/Aids prevention strategy.
In addition to the circumcisions, the union has trained, created awareness and provided treatment to 116 686 employees.
CapeTalk's John Maytham spoke to Dr. Laurene Booyens of SACTWU Worker Health Program on their successful circumcision program.
