This manual builds on the World Health Organization’s Manual for male circumcision under local anaesthesia and focuses entirely on early infant male circumcision. It has been developed by WHO in collaboration with Jhpiego to help providers and programme managers deliver high-quality safe infant male circumcision services for the purposes of HIV prevention and other health benefits.

The manual draws from experiences with service provision in Africa, the Eastern Mediterranean and developed countries and was reviewed by actual and potential providers of male circumcision services representing a range of health care and cultural settings where demand for male circumcision services is high.
