‘YUKI’S CHAPS VIDEO HITS YOUTUBE
EZULWINI – A touching video on the benefits of male circumcision by CHAPS was launched yesterday at Happy Valley Hotel.
Featuring the Centre for HIV and AIDS Prevention Studies (CHAPS) Ambassador Dennis ‘Yuki’ Masina, the 5.14 minutes video outlines the importance of circumcision and how it has benefitted the former Sihlangu captain.
The video is dubbed ‘Yuki doubles his defence’, which solely promotes male circumcision as a tool to lower new HIV infections and by the end of business yesterday, the video had about 60 views.
In the Prepex Circumcision seminar, health experts converged to discuss the new way of the removal of the male foreskin process that requires no surgery, no injections, and no stitches and has no bleeding.
‘Yuki’ brings to the attention of the world that one in four adults are HIV positive and that every year, around 9 000 Swazis are newly-infected while over 80 000 Swazi men have chosen to circumcise since 2009 with 190 000 yet to.
‘Yuki’ has been in the forefront of the campaign, after he got circumcised at a Johannesburg clinic about four months ago and has helped CHAPS Swaziland circumcise more males through their partnership with the Hhohho Regional Football Association (HRFA), through the recently ended CHAPS Soka Nawe Hhohho FA Cup.
Male circumcision according to the surgeons, among other things, reduces the risk of HIV infection by 60 per cent, reduces the risk of sexually transmitted infections, penile cancer and cervical cancer for female partners
