Prevention+: Men and women ending gender based violence
This brief introduces Prevention+, is a five-year multi-country programme that envisions a world where healthy, respectful, and equal relationships are the norm. To contribute to making this a reality, the programme addresses the root causes of GBV – the social, economic, religious, and cultural contexts that shape attitudes and behaviour that lead to violence.
A report documenting women’s perspectives on male circumcision for HIV prevention based on interviews and focus group discussions with about 500 women in HIV-affected communities in Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, and Uganda. The report offers recommendations on how to ensure that the rollout of voluntary medical male circumcision is safe and beneficial to whole communities—including men and women.
Uganda’s Safe Male Circumcision Policy was developed through participatory and consultative processes and was informed by the draft National Health Policy and the 2008/2012 National HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan. This policy provides a framework for increasing access to and use of safe and sustainable male circumcision services as an integral part of the national HIV prevention strategy.
