The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

An Is­raeli-made, less painful and bloodless circumcision de­vice was launched in Kenya dur­ing PM Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu’s visit in July. PrePex uses a small plas­tic de­vice to clip the fore­skin. This stops blood flow caus­ing the fore­skin to die off over seven days. There is no bleed­ing and stitches are not needed. The de­vice will en­cour­age more peo­ple to get cir­cum­cised, said Na­tional Aids and STI Pro­gramme head Martin Sirengo. The de­vice will not ben­e­fit men with small re­pro­duc­tive or­gans.
