In Tanzania, over 1 million adults live with HIV and over 2 million children have been orphaned by the virus. The country also suffers from a severe shortage health workers—there are only three trained health professionals for every 10,000 people. This means that many who are HIV-positive go undiagnosed and untreated.
IntraHealth International’s $17.3 million Tanzania HIV Prevention Project addresses HIV and the health worker shortage by improving and increasing male circumcision services throughout the country. Voluntary medical male circumcision reduces the risk of HIV transmission in men by 60%.
