Dr. David Tomlinson, clinical instructor in family medicine in the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, was on hand to assist in the first ever male infant circumcision in Zimbabwe Nov. 28. The Ministry of Health for Zimbabwe, a nation with a high rate of HIV infection, invited Tomlinson’s team of Brown and Harvard doctors to help train local doctors in the procedure, which public health officials consider an important HIV prevention measure. Tomlinson and his colleagues have previously contributed their expertise to the manual of infant circumcision of the World Health Organization.
