Uptake of male circumcision (MC) may be reduced in settings where HIV testing is a requirement—or a perceived requirement—for MC. This study was a one-arm, open-label, prospective study in HIV-positive men in Zimbabwe to assess the safety and efficacy of the PrePex MC device. After the PrePex MC device was placed and removed, men would return for weekly visits and on day 90 for the team to assess wound healing.

The study found that MC using PrePex is safe and effective for healthy HIV-positive men. Researchers also conclude that reducing the barrier of HIV testing while improving counseling for safer sex practice among all MC clients could increase MC uptake.
