dc.description.abstractMale adult circumcision (MC) has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV transmission in men by 50-60 %. An upscaling in the training of providers to perform circumcision is necessary to meet demand since MC is a key component of essential surgery in the context of universal health coverage. We piloted a low-cost, high-fidelity model for training adult circumcision. Multi-centre, multinational data were collected on 74 trainees and clinicians (trainers) in sub-Saharan Africa. Both trainers and trainees gave excellent feedback for the model (content and face validity). The simulated model enables a safe and realistic simulation experience to perform MC. The model is quick to set up and easily transportable to multiple teaching sites.
