Abstract

Clement Manineng investigated the acceptability and feasibility of integrating medical circumcision within male initiation ceremonies in Yangoru-Saussia, Papua new Guinea. The intervention was acceptable and feasible although there were tensions between cultural and biomedical practices. A culture-oriented model for comprehensive HIV prevention in Yangoru-Saussia is developed from these results.
