Tohara Salama (“Safe Circumcision”)

Speeches Shim

Tohara Salama (“Safe Circumcision”) is a two-year activity which aims to expand Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) services in five priority regions in Tanzania. The Tanzania National Multi-sectoral Framework for HIV and AIDS recognizes VMMC as a highly effective HIV prevention intervention that has the potential to reduce the risk of female to male transmission by at least 60%. Male circumcision also reduces sexually transmitted infections (STIs), particularly ulcerative STIs, including herpes and syphilis, and penile cancer.
