Kenya: The politics of Mass Male Circumcision

HIV Kenya discusses the politics of “Mass Male Circumcision“: It seems like a short time since the issue of mass male circumcision (MMC) became a political football and it is not even the latest issue to have that status any more. But articles about it still appear every now and again and there seem to be a handful of genuine projects aiming to roll out MMC in some countries.

    The debate on Male Mass Circumcision, especially in Kenya is polluted and some of those involved in the initiative appear less honest in their intentions.

    There is need for more discussion and interrogation of the whole initiative beyond the claims of health benefits.

    I am keen to engage abit more on this debate ….
