Prevention/Epidemiology

Medical Male Circumcision (MC)

December 10, 2010

MC "is a proven, one time, low-cost biomedical intervention that could save millions of lives and significant resources if implemented," according to a Center for Global Health Policy issue brief (.pdf) that summarizes prior studies demonstrating the benefits of MC for men and their partners, outlines a strategy for MC scale-up and details current U.S. funding of MC. "It is vital that the U.S. global AIDS program continues to have resources to support countries in their efforts to implement this lifesaving prevention intervention. In this challenging budgetary environment, it is more essential than ever that HIV prevention resources are directed to programs and strategies that are proven to work," the brief states (December 2010).
