In June 2008, AVAC convened more than 35 civil society representatives—the majority of whom were women living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa—in Mombasa, Kenya, to discuss the implications of male circumcision for HIV prevention for women. The two-day dialogue summarised in this report directly preceded a World Health Organization (WHO) expert consultation on the same topic, which was held 24-25 June at the same location. WHO sponsored the civil society participants from its meeting to attend the civil society dialogue, and AVAC invited and sponsored an additional group of women activists and advocates from sub-Saharan Africa.
