  • To cut or not to cut

    Al Jazeera - 04/21/2014

    Roughly 1.1 million people in Zimbabwe live with HIV. Studies show circumcision could reduce the risk of infection by 60 per cent. Since 2011, Zimbabwean men and infants have been undergoing voluntary non-surgical circumcision. Opponents of circumcision argue the risks don’t outweigh the benefits and claim messaging is giving men a false sense of hope regarding HIV prevention. To cut or not to cut?
