Abstract

This study is basically assessing the contribution of Male circumcision Practice in Prevention of HIV/AIDS infection. However, this study is backed up by previous studies whereas WHO and UNAIDS recommended that Male Circumcision is an important practice for HIV/AIDS prevention. The study however, has encompassed five major chapters which together inform about the author’s study road map. The key information in chapter one are based on the coherent parts which include introductory part, background of the study, objectives of the study, research questions, significance of the study and statement of the problem. While chapter two has captured review of some literatures including books, journals, researches, magazines and theories in particular the health belief model, Chapter three has stipulated the research design involving both quantitative and qualitative design. Likewise, the study has been enriched with Chapter Five whereby the summary of the findings has clearly been determined by the researcher as well recommendations and conclusion have also clearly been sorted out and hence the study has shown about 75% of circumcised males have lower chance to HIV/AIDS infections. Conclusively, the wealth of this study is potentially triggered by the intensive structuring of the study itself but also the coherent data collection methods which enabled the collection of very useful information which now justify the importance of male circumcision practice in prevention of HIV/ AIDS infection.
