March 4, 2011
In the first of a week-long series on efforts to ramp up male circumcision in sub-Saharan Africa, the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" features a Q&A with Caroline Ryan, director of technical leadership at the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, who describes the costs associated with male circumcision campaigns and how PEPFAR funds are being used for such programs in Africa (Donnelly, 2/28). A second post features a Q&A with Kelly Curran, director of HIV and Infectious Diseases at the international health organization Jhpiego, who describes the organization's involvement in capacity-building and service delivery to assist African ministries of health, defense force health systems and NGOs to expand safe and comprehensive medical male circumcision (Mazzotta, 3/1).
