On November 29, 2011, PLoS Medicine announced the publication of a sponsored collection, in conjunction with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) – Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision for HIV Prevention: The Cost, Impact, and Challenges of Accelerated Scale-Up in Southern and Eastern Africa.
Today, December 19, 2011, a question-and-answer Twitter expert session [#VMMC@USAIDGH] will be held, from 1pm-2pm EST, with Emmanuel Njeuhmeli, Senior Biomedical Prevention Advisor of the Office of HIV/AIDS/USAID Washington, Co-Chair PEPFAR, Male Circumcision Technical Working Group, and an author on several of the articles in the Collection.
We encourage readers to tweet questions (with #VMMC@USAIDGH) about the new push for #VMMC for #endofaids and other topics about this collection.
