MGM does not help prevent HIV infection.
Recent news from Botswana: “There is an upsurge of cases of people who got infected with HIV following circumcision.”
From Zimbabwe: “Some circumcised men are contracting HIV and Aids after ditching the use of condoms, under a misguided belief that male circumcision (MC) would prevent them from getting infected.”
From Kenya: “Push for male circumcision in Nyanza fails to reduce infections.”
From Uganda: “A new study of 314 female s-x workers (FSWs) in Makindye division found that more than half of respondents falsely believe that once a man is circumcised, protection is not necessary during sex.”
From Malawi: “According to the report, HIV rates have doubled in Malawi, moving from 10% to 20% in 1 year. Strangely, this has been the same period that Malawians have been forced to go through circumcision in masses with the promise that it reduces the contraction of HIV.”
