Man, What Took You So Long? Factors Affecting Adult Attendance at Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Services in Tanzania

Man, what took you so long?

In 2009, the Government of Tanzania embarked on scaling up voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) services for HIV prevention in eight priority regions, with the aim of serving 2.8 million boys and men ages 10 to 34 years by 2013. By mid-2012, more than 110,000 boys and men in Iringa and Njombe regions had received VMMC. The majority (85 percent) of these VMMC clients were under 19 years old (average age, 16 years). The study described in this 4:12-minute video aimed to identify potential barriers and facilitators to VMMC among older men.
