The Cost of Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision in South Africa


To project the resources needed to complete 4.3 million male circumcisions from 2010 to 2016, researchers estimated the unit cost of providing voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC); assessed cost drivers and cost variances across eight provinces and different modes of VMMC service delivery; and evaluated the costs associated with mobilising and motivating men and boys to access VMMC services. The results of the study are presented in a PLoS collection of VMMC modelling studies.
