Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Is A Cost-Effective, Safe Way To Prevent HIV

Emmanuel Njeuhmeli, a senior biomedical prevention advisor in the USAID Office of HIV/AIDS, discusses efforts to raise awareness about male circumcision as a “cost saving and effective form of HIV prevention” in a post on USAID’s “Impact Blog.” Njeuhmeli highlights a video that “examines the expansion of male circumcision as an HIV prevention intervention and tells the story of how governments and communities in Kenya and Swaziland have embraced [voluntary medical male circumcision] in their countries. The goal of the film is to show that VMMC services can be replicated and expanded to reach the critical mass needed for maximum public health impact” (6/27).
