In 2007, WHO recommended that voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) should be scaled up in priority countries with high HIV prevalence and low male circumcision (MC) prevalence. UNAIDS estimated that 3.2 million males had undergone VMMC by the end of 2012. Implementation experience has raised questions about the need to refocus VMMC programs on specific subpopulations for the greatest epidemiological impact and programmatic effectiveness. As Malawi prepared its National Operational Plan for VMMC, it sought to examine impacts of targeting subpopulations by age and subnational region. The Health Policy Project, with funding from PEPFAR through USAID, applied the new DMPPT 2.0 model (see this poster  for model description) to study the impact of scaling up VMMC to different target populations disaggregated by age group and geographical subregions of Malawi. This poster was presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2014.
