A room to perform minor surgery was equipped at the DREAM center in Blantyre to carry out male circumcision on the children of the program.
Male circumcision has in fact been shown to reduce by 60% the risk of transmission of HIV infection.
To bring children to circumcision today means to have significantly fewer people who will become infected by HIV tomorrow.
Silvano and Yanis are the first two healthy babies born under the DREAM program who underwent this surgery in the Blantyre center.
Together with the other strategies of the DREAM program, circumcision is another piece of the jigsaw to support the dream of raising a healthy generation in Africa and build a future in which HIV infection is defeated.
