The World Health Organization’s new 2016–2021 strategic framework on voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) targets 90% of males aged 10–29 years to receive circumcision by 2021 in 14 priority sub-Saharan countries while anticipating an increase in the demand for infant circumcision. It also states that the use of circumcision devices is a safe and efficient innovation to accelerate attainment of these goals. The primary objective of this pilot study was to evaluate the safety and acceptability of the ShangRing, a novel circumcision device, in boys below 18 years of age.
