In a comprehensive report on male circumcision in the Izindaba section of the December 2009 edition of the SAMJ, the period of abstinence from sexual activity following male circumcision is cited as 'about 3 weeks'. This is incorrect. The recommended period of abstinence is a minimum of 6 weeks, the main criterion being full healing of the circumcision wound.

Kelly Curran, Technical Director of the HIV/AIDS and Infectious Diseases Department at Jhpiego, a not-for-profit international health organisation affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, was also incorrectly depicted as having this title 'at Johns Hopkins University'.

The author regrets the errors.
