Soka Uncobe Photo Gallery

This photo gallery highlights select milestones, clinic activity and experiences of the ASI/Soka Uncobe campaign. These photos are a visual representation of the collaborative and comprehensive work of the program. This collection is a minimal perspective of the fullness of the Soka Uncobe campaign. 
 

 


Soka Uncobe was a collaboration led by the Ministry of Health and implementing partners. In this photo flags of Soka Uncobe and partner organizations were placed together in a celebration for World AIDS Day 2011.
Mass media efforts included partnerships with local stores, using wall paintings to increase awareness of Soka Uncobe. There are 284 of these of varying sizes throughout the country. This photo is a mechanic garage in the rural area of Manzini, Swaziland.


Logistics and supply management were a major component of Soka Uncobe. This photo shows the main storage for receiving and shipping male circumcision equipment and medical supplies to clinic sites.
As noted in the waste management section, there were many milestones achieved in healthcare waste management and disposal during Soka Uncobe. This photo shows an Interfrieight vehicle transporting medical waste from health facility bound for incineration along with a Garvey employee measuring beach for dilution for cleaning.


Clinics were both static and outreach based on need, demand, and logistics. This photo shows the operating theater in a surgical marquee. This surgical marquee was located in a park in Siteki, Swaziland.
