FLAS Baseline Study: Knowledge, Perceptions and Practices on Male Circumcision
Swaziland is faced with a raging HIV and AIDS epidemic. It is estimated that 75% of the people living with HIV and AIDS worldwide are located in the sub-Saharan Africa. Over the last few years, Swaziland has witnessed a sharp increase in the HIV prevalence rate. The 2004 Sentinel Surveillance indicates that the prevalence rate is at 42.6%, thus placing Swaziland as the most affected in the whole world. Male circumcision (MC) is currently offered at FLAS clinics as part of the expanded programme on sexual reproductive health for men.
