Aim: To systematically review the effectiveness of education and/or training for traditional (informal) and formal health service providers in infant male circumcision on morbidity or mortality outcomes. Methods: We searched Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, Global Health, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects and clinical trial registries in all languages from January 1985 to June 2018. Our primary outcomes were all-cause morbidity and all-cause mortality. Results: We identified 1399 publications. Only four non-controlled before and after studies from the USA and Uganda satisfied our criteria, all of which examined the effect of training on the skills and knowledge of medical doctors, midwives and clinical officers. No study involved informal traditional circumcision providers. All included studies were low quality. Conclusions: High-quality studies of simple training packages to improve education and training of circumcision providers, especially informal non-medical providers in low income countries are needed.
