Zambia began providing voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) services as a method of HIV prevention in 2007 in conjunction with the joint announcement by the WHO and UNAIDS that VMMC should be included as part of comprehensive HIV prevention and treatment programmes. The national VMMC programme was formally launched in 2009. Building on that foundation, this costed national operational plan is designed to guide significant VMMC programme expansion in 2012-2015.
