The purpose of the study described in this report was to provide Ugandan decision makers with adequate information to decide whether and how to pursue promoting male circumcision as an HIV prevention strategy. Based on the interests, concerns, and information needs expressed at preliminary stakeholders’ meetings, the specific objectives of the analysis were to describe: 1) the degree of support for male circumcision among key political, ethnic, and religious leaders at national and local levels; 2) the acceptability of male circumcision among men and women; 3) the themes and issues that should be taken into account in developing messages to promote male circumcision as an HIV prevention strategy; 4) mechanisms for integrating male circumcision into other health programmes; and 5) the availability at hospitals and health centers of the human resources and infrastructure needed to provide high-quality male circumcision services.
