The success of our movement depends on vasectomy providers who go beyond the call of duty in their commitment and compassion for the craft, for their colleagues and for their clients. This award honors an individual vasectomy provider who, through their work, has made an extraordinary contribution to our movement.
A skilled doctor.
An innovative promoter.
A dog lover, a loyal partner and dear friend to our cause.
In less than a decade he has emerged as one of the most prolific vasectomy providers in all of Mexico. In 2019 he opened his own clinic. He has been awarded first prize in performance 4 times, and in 2022 alone he has already performed 2100 vasectomies, all while opening his own vasectomy clinic - the only one of its kind in Guadalajara.
He believes a vasectomy is not just a family planning method, but a chance for men to give a loving gift that makes their family stronger, their wife safer, their children’s future brighter, and society as a whole healthier.
Both for his extraordinary work and his role in helping build Mexico into leaders in male sexual and reproductive health, we are pleased to offer the Provider of the Year award, to Dr. Francisco Morales.
Generous and passionate, she shares her commitment to excellence with colleagues at DKT and the Centro Nacional de Salud. She recently inaugurated the first World Vasectomy Clinic and dreams of bringing the same to other countries in her region and beyond.
Trained by Doug Stein, Dr. Mesadieu has been the driving force and backbone of multiple NSVI missions and despite all the challenges of providing medical services in his region, has helped change attitudes and awareness about vasectomies. And while many doctors were forced to stop working because of Covid, he has continued to provide vasectomy services throughout. For him, a Vasectomy, as with all family planning, should be considered a priority procedure.
For this unwavering dedication through these times of adversity, for being vasectomy services to the most underserved and for proving his fortitude and commitment to excellence, World Vasectomy Day is honored to acknowledge Maudelin’s contributions to our movement and his nation.
She has been committed to her work at Profamilia for 21 years, in which she has performed nearly 35,000 vasectomies. Dr. Diana is a pioneer in the use of the thermocautery vasectomy technique in the country, which she has perfected while participating in innovative training in Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela. Her leadership, dedication and contribution to male participation in contraception in the country, makes her a recipient of the 2019 Award for Excellence in Vasectomy Practice.
