Circumcision Plans Go Awry in Swaziland

It is an ambitious plan to circumcise the majority of men in Swaziland

It is an ambitious plan to circumcise the majority of men in Swaziland, an effort to reduce the risk of HIV transmission in a country with the world’s highest HIV prevalence.

Some Swazis believe that circumcision will not protect them against HIV, while others have a problem with the fact that one cannot have sex for some weeks or months after circumcision.

These views are at the heart of the failure of the Accelerated Saturation Initiative (ASI) programme, which was born out of partnership between the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and the United States-based, Futures Group, to circumcise 80 percent of Swazi males between ages 15 and 49 within a year.
