MALE CIRCUMCISION 2016-12-08T08:38:16+00:00

Since 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNAIDS have recommended voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) as a key component of HIV prevention in countries with a high HIV prevalence and low levels of male circumcision.

The Muslim Aids Programme has implemented mobilisation activities for voluntary medical male circumcision as an effective HIV prevention strategy. The male circumcision procedure only partially protects men from HIV transmission.
