[Film] In It to Save Lives: Scaling Up VMMC for HIV Prevention for Maximum Public Health Impact

In It to Save Lives tells the story of how governments and communities in Kenya and Swaziland, with technical and financial support from the WHO, UNAIDS, PEPFAR, USAID, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have embraced voluntary medical male circumcision to turn the tide of the HIV epidemic in their countries. Featuring interviews with international experts, national and regional policymakers, and program implementers, the film shows that VMMC programs can be replicated and expanded to reach the critical mass needed for maximum HIV public health impact. In the film, award-winning filmmaker, Lisa Russell, weaves together a narrative of success in VMMC programming within communities proud of their contribution to an AIDS-free generation. Russell's second film, covering the successful VMMC program in Tanzania, is also available online: Watch It's About the People: Tanzania's VMMC Program Gets it Right.
