Guideline on the use of devices for adult male circumcision for HIV prevention

    Publication year: 2013

    This guideline provides an evidence-based recommendation on the use of adult male circumcision devices for HIV prevention in public health programmes in high HIV prevalence, resource-limited settings. It also presents key programmatic considerations for the introduction and use of these devices in public health HIV prevention programmes. The primary audiences are policy- and decision-makers, programme managers, health-care providers, donors and implementing agencies. The guideline was developed according to the WHO standards and requirements for guideline development. The process involved internal and external consultations with technical experts, national programme managers, consumer advocates and an evidence review methodologist. Two complementary annexes are also available.
