The interaction of low male circumcision and high partner concurrency on HIV risk in Africa: evidence from demographic and health surveys

This poster was presented at AIDS 2016 and establishes that male circumcision and MCP should not be addressed as separate interventions. While much emphasis has been placed on scaling up male circumcision, in the absence of concerted efforts to reduce sexual concurrency, increased circumcision may have a less-than-anticipated impact. Adopting an integrated approach to addressing male circumcision and sexual concurrency is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal target 3.3: Ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
