  9. Research: • Survey 2010 in Orange Farm • Demand creation studies • Other STI’s • HPV • HSV2 • MOVE Evaluation

  10. What have we learnt?Part 1 • Minimum package of delivery crucial • Misunderstanding about MC very challenging • Language issues • Misinformation • Risk compensation • Risk to women • Excellent opportunity to engage young men about safe sex, HIV in general • VCT / HCT uptake much higher than in general population (VCT 35% HCT 70%) • Individual conversation important to individualise information and discuss 6 week abstinence

  11. What have we learnt?Part 2 • Information delivery has to be flexible and dynamic • Test messaging outcomes • Obtain feedback from community • React to research findings • Huge interest from parents about their children • Information delivery has to be culturally sensitive • Photos and drawings • Without political backing and will MC will have limited impact -> National campaigns Uncircumcised Partially circumcised Circumcised

  12. Self reported MC status • Men were asked “Are you circumcised?” • After the interview a physical examination was done to which they consented at the beginning of the interview • Physical examination was done by a male nurse • 45% of men who said they were circumcised had intact foreskin • Possible reasons: • Confusion between MC and Initiation • Confusion with words used, vernacular • Lack of knowledge on what MC is • How does HIV compare in these groups?

  13. HIV (%) and circumcision status PRR=0.93 p=0.73 20.2% 18.8% ‘’Circumcised’’ with foreskin Uncircumcised

  14. HIV (%) and circumcision status PRR=0.48p=0.002 20.2% 18.8% 9.5% ‘’Circumcised’’ without foreskin ‘’Circumcised’’ with foreskin Uncircumcised Thus, self reported MC status is a VERY unreliable indicator
