VMMC Program Overview


In 2007, Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) was recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) as part of a comprehensive HIV prevention package in countries with a generalized HIV epidemic and low rates of male circumcision. Compelling scientific evidence has shown that circumcision reduces the risk of female-to-male sexual transmission of HIV by up to 60%. Zimbabwe was one of 14 countries in Sub Saharan Africa which stand to benefit greatly from VMMC in terms of HIV infections averted by 2025. As HIV remains a major public health challenge in Zimbabwe, the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC) has adopted and prioritized VMMC as a national strategy to add to the suite of interventions designed to end  HIV and  AIDS by  2030 as  part  of the  global  commitment  towards  the  HIV and  AIDS response.
