November 7, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

VMMC offers a unique opportunity to engage adolescent and adult males in high-quality HIV prevention communication and services, and to share key messages with males who otherwise might not interact with the health system. The new VMMC In-Service Communication Best Practices Guide helps to ensure that the communication and counseling at VMMC sites is comprehensive and standardized across PEPFAR’s country programs. Join us on November 7 for a webinar that will provide an overview of this new reference guide and how best to use it to improve communication with VMMC clients.

  • Kim Seifert-Ahanda, Senior Social and Behavior Change Advisor, Office of HIV/AIDS, U.S. Agency for International Development
  • Jonathan Davitte, VMMC Advisor, HIV/AIDS Prevention Project, U.S. Department of Defense
  • Lani Marquez, Knowledge Management Director, USAID ASSIST Project, University Research Co., LLC
