Program evaluation as an important practical implication of Van Howe and Storm’s paper

Abstract

Van Howe and Storm’s paper is commended for asking valid questions regarding the scientific evidence upon which circumcision as an HIV prevention strategy is based. The paper however gives no real practical suggestions as to what the way forward should be regarding the already rolled out circumcision programs in Africa. This contribution seeks to highlight the importance of rigorous program evaluation as a critical practical implication of the paper and a way forward for such programs.
