Message to Business Leaders on VMMC [Pamphlet, Kenya]

This leaflet is part of the VMMC Communication Toolkit which was developed to create and sustain demand for Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision (VMMC) and reinforce that, while VMMC reduces risk for men, it does not prevent HIV and must be combined with other prevention behaviors to be effective.

The toolkit consists of communication materials, posters and pamphlets, a video, tools, a video discussion guide, a guide to working with the media, and a guide for adapting materials. The Toolkit targets affected audiences in Kenya’s Nyanza province and includes a communication guide that builds upon the national VMMC strategy.

This leaflet is aimed at business leaders, to answer their questions about VMMC, such as how it works, whether it is safe, what to do if an employee wants time off to have the procedure, and what else they can do to protect their employees from HIV.
