Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision for HIV Prevention: Improving Quality, Efficiency, Cost Effectiveness, & Demand for Services during an Accelerated Scale-up

Partnered Collections, Special Issues

With new HIV infections in Sub-Saharan Africa occurring at a rate of 2.3 million each year, this new collection presents interim results from a large public health intervention of voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) performed by health care practitioners to prevent new infections. This collection examines lessons learned from the scaled-up VMMC program since 2008. Research focuses on numerous programs, identifying strengths and challenges, including demand creation, quality of surgical services, data collection and cost controls.
