This literature review follows the logical and steady progress over 20 years of studies and research that led, in 2007, to the WHO and UNAIDS recommending medical male circumcision (MMC) as an essential element of a comprehensive HIV prevention package. Academic and programme modelling over the following four years led to PEPFAR setting targets and determining the required financial support for 13 countries in eastern and southern Africa to scale-up male circumcision (MC) programmes to reach and then maintain an 80% MC prevalence. Data released on March 2012 show that these countries have not yet been able to reach the necessary scale-up volumes. The review concludes with the recent WHO announcement of an innovative non-surgical device method, PrePex, which could potentially have a significant effect on enabling these countries to reach these scale-up targets more quickly.
