Photo by Trevor Snapp for IntraHealth International November 29, 2017 In Tanzania, 225,093 men and boys have lowered their risk of contracting HIV after seeking out voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) services, provided by IntraHealth International’s Tohara Plus project in its first year. About 1.4 million Tanzanians live with HIV today. And officials estimate that each year, 55,000 more become infected and 33,000 die of AIDS-related causes. The HIV prevalence among 15-49 year olds is 4.7%, and even higher among pregnant women (5.6%) and key populations (25-36%).
