Increasing the number of voluntary medical male circumcisions using triangulated data in the Lakes Region, Tanzania

As coverage of male circumcision increases, it becomes more difficult to identify eligible men for this HIV prevention activity. Using triangulated data to generate maps has helped to identify areas of eligible men and thus increased program performance by 200 percent. Through innovative solutions like this one, Tanzania is on-track to reach its target of 90 percent male circumcision coverage among 10-29 year-olds by 2020.
