The issue of medical circumcision (MC) in Eswatini is a deeply emotive and controversial one, and no consensus on the subject exists in the country.
This book presents an insider perspective on the mass implementation of medical male circumcision in Eswatini, and all of the experiences and challenges associated with the process. The book is both a biography and an ethnographical account of that MC implementation process. Ayanda Nqeketo discusses the process not only from his perspective as the country’s MC Co-ordinator, but also as an outsider to the Kingdom’s customs and culture. In particular, he focuses on the controversies that emerged; how they were handled; how they affected the roll-out of MC in the country; as well as the positive gains achieved.
