2016 was a year of progress and accomplishments for the PrePex program in Africa that saw many milestones reached. We are happy to share with you a short video, highlighting some of the events that took place throughout the year:
As we step into 2017, we are looking into introducing an additional PrePex technique which includes the early removal of the foreskin that will allow even more men and boys to benefit from PrePex services.
In line with our vision to contribute to the global fight against HIV/AIDS through a safe and scalable non-surgical male circumcision device, we anticipate receiving the World Health Organization (WHO) Prequalification of PrePex for boys aged 10-12 years, while we will continue to develop our PrePex devices for Infants and Children.
Furthermore, the WHO recently prequalified our new, state-of-the-art PrePex manufacturing line in the USA, which will start operating soon. This additional manufacturing line will enable the fast and uncompromising standard of manufacturing for the PrePex device.
Moreover, following our donation of three mobile clinics to the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Care, we are considering the donation of additional mobile clinics to more African priority countries throughout 2017.
We take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and to wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year.
