This assessment examined attitudes and perceptions toward male circumcision as part of a larger situational analysis of male circumcision in Namibia that was designed to inform the development of a national prevention strategy. The research, conducted for the Ministry of Health and Social Services, was conducted in 2008 and collected information on: 1) the perceived benefits and drawbacks of male circumcision, 2) attitudes of individuals toward male circumcision, 3) key influences on the decision to circumcise, and 4) public understanding of the relationship between HIV and male circumcision. Data were collected through focus group discussions and key informant interview in eight regions (2010, 60 pages).
