A voice for men


In November of last year the World Health Organization, in conjunction with various other worldwide health organizations like UNIAID and the Presidents Emergency Plan For Aids Relief, released a document entitled, “Joint Strategic Action Framework to Accelerate the Scale-Up of Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision for HIV Prevention in Eastern and Southern Africa 2012–2016.”

This document outlines a multinational plan to circumcise tens of millions of men in Sub Saharan Africa over the next four years. The scope of the plan includes branding circumcision itself so young people will want to have it performed as well as school programs that actively “recruit” young boys to have the procedure done and to encourage them recruit others as well. In spite of repeated assurance throughout the document that human rights would be respected, it included provisions for a “sustainability phase” intended to eventually make male infant circumcision compulsory in the region.
