Abstract:

Compelling evidence of the effectiveness of voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) as an HIV prevention intervention emerged during three randomized control trials that concluded in 2007. In December 2011, the World Health Organization and UNAIDS established a global strategic target of scaling up VMMC to reach 80 percent male circumcision prevalence among priority countries by 2016.
As programs have rolled out VMMC, questions have arisen about how programs can be focused on populations where they will achieve the greatest impact. The Health Policy Project, with funding from PEPFAR through USAID, constructed a new model, DMPPT 2.0, to examine the impact and cost of focusing circumcision services on different age groups and subnational regions. This poster, presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, provides an overview of the model.
