    Tororo women are discouraging their husbands from undergoing circumcision, health authorities have disclosed.

    Willy Mungoma, the district health educator, said most of the women think their husbands may take long to heal, thereby denying them sex.

    “In our routine sensitisation programmes and radio tallkshows, women challenge us to explain how long their husbands would take to heal. This is because they think taking a long time to heal would make them miss sex,” he said.

    Mungoma said this during a two-day HIV/AIDS workshop on the National Strategic Policy Dissemination that was organised by the World Vision on Tuesday.

    The workshop aimed at sensitising people about safe sexual behaviour in order to reduce the risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS.
