About The celebration

 From April 23 to April 26, Dr. Ochieng will be hosting a group of international vasectomy experts for a 4-day event. Usually a vasectomy in Kenya costs 15,000 Shillings, but during this special celebration, Dr. Ochieng and his group will be performing vasectomies for free.

The purpose of the celebration is to educate men about vasectomy and to promote this highly effective method of contraception.

The international vasectomy experts will be Dr. Doug Stein and Dr. John Curington, both leaders from NSVI (No-Scalpel Vasectomy International). Also on the team will be Jonathan Stack, the co-founder of World Vasectomy Day, and a tireless campaigner in global education regarding men’s role in contraception.

This event will be hosted by FHOK (Family Health Options Kenya), in their clinic in downtown Nairobi.  FHOK is a local Non-Governmental Organization that has been a leading provider of sexual and reproductive health services in Kenya for the past five decades.
