Three recent studies have shown that Medical Male Circumcision (MMC) is one of the most effective tools to fight HIV and AIDS, reducing chances of infection by near 60 percent. Within the next five years, initiatives including those of PEPFAR (The President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will perform Voluntary MMC (VMMC) on over 20 million men in Africa. Faith-inspired organizations and interfaith collaborations are among those spearheading the initiatives. Dr. Inon Schenker, one of Israel's leading professionals in the field, presented on how Jewish-Muslim-Christian collaborations are paving the way for innovations in biomedical interventions in HIV prevention in PEPFAR priority countries. This event was jointly organized by the Berkley Center, the World Faiths Development Dialogue, and Operation Abraham Collaborative.
