Since the programme was rolled out in March this year, less than 3,000 men have been circumcised in the area.
The director said they were targeting 175,000 men at the end of the five-year programme.
He noted the programme was not well co-ordinated in the area due to misinformation.
The director of NHRS Emma Llewellyn said they have resolved misunderstandings between health workers and the community.
Ms Llewellyn said they suspended the local programme co-ordinator over alleged financial misappropriation. "We are investigating the case to determine his reinstatement," she added.
Llewellyn said they will work with unemployed health professionals in the area to reinvigorate the programme.
The VMMC forum was held at Lodwar Catholic Diocese at Saint Annâs Nanjala.
It was attended by health practitioners, civil societies officials and members of the provincial administration.
