Country experiences male circumcision

In March 2007, WHO and UNAIDS released recommendations on male circumcision as an additional HIV prevention intervention. As two years have passed since the initial release, sixty-seven participants from ten countries (Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe) attended a sub-regional consultation in Windhoek, Namibia on 9 -10 June, 2009, to report on progress, share experiences, exchange ideas and forge collaborations in the male circumcision efforts.
