This study used VMMC provider survey data to explore concordance between recommended practices and providers’ perceptions toward efficiency elements. The analysis showed concordance between each country’s policies and provider attitudes toward the efficiency elements, concluding that adoption of these elements by providers is often based on national policies, but that there may be a need to consult providers when developing policies.
