Traditional male circumcision: How to prevent deaths and complications Traditional male circumcision: How to prevent deaths and complications HOT

This policy brief emanates from an intervention study that was conducted to develop a male circumcision health promotion programme in the Libode rural communities of the Eastern Cape province in the period 2009–2013. The study established that there is a need to include traditional leaders as custodians of the circumcision custom in the planning and development of intervention programmes to reduce both the high mortality rates and the incidence of injury associated with the practice.
