The article feature Joseph Anthony, a 21-year-old brick maker who lives in a village outside the clinic. Previously unable to access male circumcision because of financial constraints, Joseph is now one of more than 800,000 Tanzanian men who have been circumcised at no cost since 2015. The clinic also offers free HIV counselling and testing, tuberculosis treatment, and family planning education (Daily News [Tanzania], 4 August 2019).
