Kenya: Pivotal Study of Male Circumcision Device Begins in Kisumu City

Posted by African Press International on March 8, 2013

  • By Maurice Alal, API Kenya

The National AIDS/STI Control Programme (NASCOP) and the Male Circumcision Consortium (MCC) has launched a study of a novel medical device in Kisumu, Nyanza region that could transform the way male circumcision is provided for HIV prevention.

The PrePex adult male circumcision device has shown promise in clinical studies conducted in Rwanda and Zimbabwe. But this study is the first to assess the safety and acceptability of PrePex-assisted adult male circumcision in routine health care settings in Kenya.

“Our study will provide the information that the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation (MOPHS) needs to decide whether to add PrePex to the national programme on voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC),” says Dr, Peter Cherutich NASCOP director for HIV prevention and co-investigator for the study.

The study will enroll 425 men ages 18 to 49 who seek VMMC services, including 200 men at UNIM clinic in Kisumu and 225 men at dispensaries or health centres where VMMC is provided on specific days by mobile teams.

In addition to getting circumcised, all participants will receive the package of HIV prevention services recommended by the Kenya MOPHS, including HIV testing and counseling, screening and treatment for any sexually transmitted infection, condoms and instructions in how to use them, and counseling on HIV risk reduction and safer sex.

However, the main objective of the study is to assess the safety of PrePex procedure by measuring rates of complications and side effects and comparing them to the rates seen with conventional male circumcision surgery.

The researchers will also examine a range of other service delivery issues, such as client satisfaction with the procedure, providers’ perception on ease of use, return for follow-up visits, time to wound healing, the training required to achieve proficiency and the cost of the procedure.

The PrePex procedure is less invasive than the current surgical methods. The device consists on an elastic mechanism that fits closely around an inner plastic ring, clamping the foreskin and cutting off its blood supply. The foreskin then dries up and is removed after one week along with the device.

“Use of PrePex dramatically reduces the time needed to perform a male circumcision. The procedure requires no stitches, involves minimal bleeding and can be performed safely by nurses as well as physicians,” says the medic.

Dr. Paul Feldblum, FHI 360 project leader of the study, notes that PrePex offers another potential advantage over clinical surgery.

“The procedure requires no injected anaethesia for most men,” he says. “That means that with training, community-based health workers might be able to use the device to perform male circumcision safely in the settings outside the clinic.”

Several PrePex studies have been conducted in Rwanda, including a randomized controlled trial that confirmed the safety of the procedure.

The average time to complete the procedure was 3.1 minutes with PrePex, compared to an average of 15.1 minutes for clinical surgery, but the time to complete healing was seven days longer for PrePex-assisted surgery.

The studies have also been completed in Zimbabwe and Uganda though results have not been published.

The World Health Organization’s Technical Advisory Group on Innovations in the Male Circumcision has endorsed the use of PrePex in Rwanda based on the results of the studies there. The Kenya implementation study will show how well the device performs in a wider variety of settings.

The Kenyan study is collaboration among NASCOP, the MCC partners-FHI360 and the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Nyanza Reproductive Health Society. The Program is funded by a grant to FHI360 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Rise Against Impunity

Posted by African Press International on March 8, 2013

Prosecutor Bensouda and Playwright/V-Day Founder Eve Ensler mark International Women’s Day.

On 14 February 2013, one billion people rose in 207 countries to dance and s= trike and say no to sexual violence. One Billion Rising was an expression of= an urgent and deep desire of women and men across the planet to live without constant threat of violation, rape and attack.

On this March 8th which marks International Women’s Day, the rising continues. There is still much to be done. Many societies still deny the existence= of gender crimes, ignore them and even shame the victims. Prosecutor Benso= uda and Eve Ensler are joining forces to escalate the fight to end impunity= through combined efforts of advocacy and accountability, action and justice= .

“We have seen the power of one billion women and men breaking the silence, rising, healing trauma through dance and outrage, building global solidarity and energy, and rising on a scale never before seen. Next we must rise against impunity,” stated Ensler.

“The investigation and prosecution of gender based crimes must be made a priority. Victims given a voice, their own voice to tell their stories and per= petrators must not go unpunished. Together we can send a clear, strong and c= onsistent message that the use of violence against women as a tool in war is= no longer acceptable,” said Prosecutor Bensouda.

“We have chosen to come together to call on courts, governments, legal bo= dies to end impunity and hold perpetrators accountable. We are asking you t= o join us and rise to end impunity.”

The impact of the ICC goes beyond the court room; each case heard further re-enforces the need to change behaviour and prevent gender crimes. The ICC is currently investigating and prosecuting crimes including gender crimes in= Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Central African Republic, Darfur region of Sudan, Kenya, Libya, Ivory Coast and Mali.

On February 14, 2013, V-Day’s 15th anniversary, activists, writers, workers, thinkers, celebrities and women and men across the world came together to demand an end at last to violence against women. We are rising again. For= more information, visit vday.org and onebillionrising.org.
