Abstract

[Extract] Papua New Guinea (PNG) is experiencing a generalised HIV epidemic with significant burden on individuals, families and communities. Preventing HIV requires a comprehensive range of measures to be implemented to address the multi-faceted drivers of HIV transmission. Male circumcision (MC) is now recommended by World Health Organisation (WHO) as an additional HIV prevention strategy for countries, such as PNG, where HIV is primarily transmitted via heterosexual intercourse, there is a generalised epidemic and most men are not circumcised. WHO urge that there be a locally relevant evidence base to inform any locally relevant male circumcision for HIV prevention response.
