The Philippines vasectomy mission run by NSVI is offered as a public service – free of charge to men who come to the clinic. None of the doctors are paid for their time. But donations do help cover the travel costs and accommodations for the visiting physicians. You can make a tax-deductible donation here and help to support the work of Dr. Chang and the mission of NSVI.
The poverty facing families in many developing nations, such as the Philippines or Haiti, drives NSVI’s mission. Without means of affordable, reliable family planning, more are caught in the cycle and overcrowding grows at alarming rates. No Scalpel Vasectomy International coordinates the efforts of physicians who donate their time to perform vasectomies free of charge.
The value of this effort greatly contributes to a better quality of life and addresses the secondary issue of overcrowding in this already impoverished country.
It is often difficult for families to afford and acquire reliable methods of birth control. Tubal ligation is a much more complex operation than vasectomy. Though culturally the concept of vasectomy can be challenging, more and more men are overcoming those concerns to meet the needs of their families.
