|Samenvatting||The Government of Kenya has launched an initiative to improve access to safe and voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) for HIV prevention. More than 80 per cent of men in Kenya are already circumcised, but in some provinces circumcision rates are much lower. The government aims to increase access to MC as part of an effort to halve levels of HIV in the country by 2012. The VMMC programme was established after three landmark studies conducted in Kenya, South Africa and Uganda showed that circumcision reduced a man’s chances of acquiring HIV infection by more than half.|
