Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) is the complete surgical removal of the foreskin as a one-time primary prevention intervention that reduces the risk of heterosexual transmission of HIV from women to men by 60%. It offers men substantial lifelong partial protection against the acquisition of HIV and a number of sexually transmitted diseases. By preventing new HIV infections in men, male circumcision indirectly protects women.
Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) offers an excellent opportunity to employers when it comes to bringing men into health care, linking HIV positive male employees to treatment, and expand their access to the full range of clinical services within the workplace and the general public.
