Over 250 men apply for free vasectomy in Marie Stopes five-day campaign

As the world celebrates World Vasectomy Day today, Marie Stopes Kenya, one of the leading providers of sexual and reproductive health services, has announced that about 250 men applied for the services after receiving over 400 queries through its social media channels.

The service provider said it managed to attend to about 200 by the end of the campaign which ran from November 14 through November 18.

“Through our social media engagement, MSK received over 400 queries on vasectomy with over 250 men booking for these services. By the end of the campaign, MSK managed to successfully counsel and provide approximately 200 clients with vasectomy services through our qualified medical practitioners,” read a press release by Director, Programmes and Operations at Marie Stopes, Job Makoyo.

The service provider said the services were provided in their Eastleigh Nursing Home and Sameer Park outpatient clinic.

Marie Stopes also said that in the first nine months of 2022, it performed 325 vasectomy procedures and 1,912 bilateral tubal ligations (BTLs).

Speaking to NTV, Job Makoyo stated that more people are now appreciating permanent contraception procedures, but he added that this only represented just one per cent of the family planning services they offer.

A vasectomy is a quick, painless, and highly effective surgical procedure that enables a man to use an everlasting form of birth control. A man can no longer use sex to impregnate a woman once the procedure has been carried out.

On the other hand, a Bilateral Tubal Ligation (BTL) involves blocking the fallopian tubes to stop the ovum (egg) from being fertilized. The fallopian tubes can either be clipped together or cut, burned, or removed in sections.

Marie stopes says such a procedure can go for between KES 30,000 to KES 50,000.

Marie Stopes announced that it would keep offering free Vasectomy services through its outreach program even beyond the campaign.
