Do it with a friend

Two young men in Namibia are posting videos of their experiences with voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) as part of a social media campaign to encourage men to get circumcised, New Era Live reports. Using the hashtag #doitwithafriend and posting on Facebook and other platforms videos that will follow the men through the six-week healing period, the campaign will address some of the fears and misconceptions that uncircumcised men have about VMMC. The national strategy aims to reach 80 percent of, or 300,000, men and boys ages 10 to 49 with VMMC services by 2021 (New Era Live, 19 November 2018).
