On their website, the "circumcision procedure kit" is be the only such "procedure pack" that they offer, (Last referenced: 5/13/2012),[3] and UNAIDS has approved them as a global supplier for these "male circumcision kits",[4] which means that they are capitalizing greatly on the endorsement of circumcision as an HIV preventative measure as endorsed by the WHO. Priontex is in direct competition with PrePex, another manufacturer of circumcision devices.

Quote from the Priontex Website

From the Priontex Website
“ Male circumcision is believed to reduce the risk of contracting HIV. International humanitarian aid organisations are facilitating the practice of voluntary adult in male clinical circumcision procedures in Southern Africa. Priontex developed a disposable circumcision kit in conjunction with these organisations and is one of the leading manufacturer and supplier of adult male circumcision kits in Sub-Saharan Africa. USAID has confirmed that Priontex is an approved global supplier for the production of male circumcision kits. ”
