PEPFAR/UNAIDS Press Conference

Launch of Five-Year Action Framework for Accelerated Access to VMMC

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) launched a five-year action framework to speed the scale-up of voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) for HIV prevention on December 5, 2011. The framework—developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNAIDS, PEFPAR, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Bank in consultation with national Ministries of Health—calls for the immediate roll-out and expansion of VMMC services in 14 priority countries of eastern and southern Africa.
