When public health officials advocate for voluntary adult male circumcision, they never mean voluntary or adult. From Zimbabwe:
The ministry was working together with the Population Services International (PSI) on the programme.
PSI director for voluntary medical male circumcision Ngonidzashe Madidi said for the purposes of sustainability, they were studying the early infant male circumcision (EIMC) to ensure protective effect of male circumcision is sustained.
Madidi said they wanted EIMC to run parallel with the adult Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) programme.
â€œCurrently, EIMC is in a study phase and we are happy to say we managed to circumcise at least 560 babies successfully,â€ Madidi said.
Are the infants happy? Do they think it was successful?
