News n. 1: HIV Prevalence Rate Rises in Mozambique
News n. 2: Mozambique reaches 63% male circumcision threshold

Mozambique is one of countries with the highest HIV prevalence in adults. But, despite the many millions of dollars spent on preventing the spread of HIV, and having attained 63% circumcised men in a few years (age group 15 to 49) a very impressive figure in a country that not traditionally circumcise, the disease is continuing to advance in Mozambique.

According to the IMASIDA (Instituto Nacional de Saúde- Moçambique) report, Tete province in the central region of the country had the both the lowest HIV rate (5.2) and the lowest rate of circumcised men, at only nine percent.

“As we can see, circumcision is not a magic wand to reduce HIV infection”, said Francisco Mbofana, lead researcher at IMASIDA and also National Director of Public Health.
