Overview

Circ MedTech (CIRC) has developed the PrePex device, a device that enables safe, simple and scalable adult male circumcision (MC) programs. MC is an effective, proven method of reducing lifetime risk of HIV infection by approximately 60% in high-risk areas such as Sub-Saharan Africa. While traditional methods of circumcision require skilled medical professionals and surgery type settings and equipment, the PrePex device offers a safe way to scale up non-surgical male circumcision to help the region achieve its HIV prevention goals. The first country to officially approve the PrePex device for routine use is Rwanda, with a national goal to decrease the HIV incidence rate by 50% by launching a voluntary MC program to reach 2 million men in 2 years.
