This offers an important opportunity to apply improvement methods, including gender integration, in the scale up of VMMC in order to learn how to effectively implement the intervention. Men should be educated about the fact that circumcision does not provide 100% protection and female partners must be empowered with knowledge to protect themselves in these situations.
