IMG-20150929-WA0001 A delegation from ZAZIC and Daniel C Rutz the Communication Specialist and Country Director for the United States Centre of Disease Control and Prevention Zimbabwe visited the Chitungwiza Arts Centre offering free circumcision to artists. Tendai from ZAZIC made a presentation on the benefits of male circumcision.

Benefits of circumcision mentioned include:
– Being circumcised is more hygienic;
– Circumcision reduces your female partner’s risk of cervical cancer;
– Circumcision reduces your risk of getting HIV by 60% and reduces the risk of other STIs.

It was also highlighted that if you are sexually active, do not forget to continue using condoms and to remain faithful.IMG_1924

A lot of talent, lives, bread winners and parents have been lost due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic within the arts sector. Research has also shown that there is a direct relationship between poverty and HIV/AIDS transmission. As AVAC Arts we support and advocate for male circumcision. Combating HIV/AIDS is Goal 6 of the Millennium Development Goals(MDGs).

We are hoping the team will be coming back soon for the actual circumcision exercise.
