The male infertility group Doctors Without Borders said on Monday it is seeking to lower the male infertility rate by reducing male-to-female transmission of the disease and improving the quality of care.
The group said the new approach could reduce the number of people who have a male partner by up to 60 percent, and the chance of them dying from the disease by as much as 90 percent.
It said it would also develop treatments to improve the quality and effectiveness of men’s health care, which include male circumcision, vasectomy and vasectomy reversal.
It called for male circumcision to be phased out, which has been illegal in some countries for decades.
Its strategy would also focus on improving the medical care of male partners, and on improving male-male communication.
