VMMC at IAS 2023

Voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) for HIV prevention was highlighted in one satellite session and a dozen posters at the 12th IAS Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2023) in Brisbane, Australia, and virtually from 23 to 26 July 2023.

Speakers at a 24 July satellite presented research results and lessons to date from efforts to develop more sustainable HIV prevention programmes and financing by embedding VMMC and biomedical HIV prevention in countries’ health systems. A poster exhibition on 24 July included a poster presentation about a randomised controlled trial of the impact of male circumcision on HIV acquisition among men who have sex with men.
