Novel Device Shows Promise for Reducing HIV Among Men
Date:5/12/2011

mmend that countries include male circumcision as part of their HIV prevention programs. But because surgical circumcision requires a trained physician or surgeon, circumcision rates remain low in many developing countries.

Through a grant to FHI from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, EngenderHealth and Cornell are working with FHI to conduct additional studies to better understand how the Shang Ring might transform the provision of male circumcision services in Africa. The research consists of a safety study and a randomized controlled trial to compare the Shang Ring with conventional surgery.
