Male Circumcision Tied to Lower HIV Prevalence
Posted by addisethiopia on July 25, 2012
An increase in male circumcision in a South African community coincides with lower overall HIV rates among adult men in that population, a new study finds. Meanwhile, a report from Kenya bolsters earlier findings that young men who get circumcised are less than half as likely as their uncircumcised peers to acquire HIV.
The two reports were presented July 24 at the 19th International AIDS Conference.
