Authors suggest that implementation of the PrePex device using non-physician health care workers is both safe and feasible, but better pain control at device removal is needed to increase the comfort of VMMC clients using the device. Longer healing time for Prepex circumcision should be taken into account for adopting measures to minimize the risk of HIV transmission to female partners of recently circumcised men living with HIV.
