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

Publish Date: May 2014
Language: English

This collection of research studies provides evidence from five African countries—Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Lesotho—that safe, high-quality voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) services performed by trained healthcare professionals in low resource settings can be implemented and sustained at scale and has the potential to significantly prevent new HIV infections in adolescent and adult men. The papers published under the PLOS Collection summarize many of the lessons learned during the accelerated scale-up of VMMC as several countries have moved to high volume VMMC services.
