The satellite will provide a summary of VMMC and early infant male circumcision (EIMC)-related research findings published recently in two journal collections. Findings with significant policy- and strategy-level consequences for national HIV programs will be highlighted. A moderated panel discussion following presentation of the research findings will see key stakeholders sharing their experiences in scaling up VMMC and their ideas about future directions. Members of the audience will be encouraged to participate actively in the dialogue. The first VMMC journal collection, a Public Library of Science (PLoS) Collection of manuscripts from three research groups, presents mathematical modeling that assesses the relative impact of VMMC scale-up across sub-populations by age and geography. The second journal collection, a Global Health Science and Practice Collection of 9 manuscripts, describes various components of EIMC including a policy review and several research studies.
