First global study of real-world circumcision rollout conducted over 3-year period in South Africa amongst 110,000 adults shows a marked reduction (>60 percent) of HIV acquisition among circumcised adult men
Date:7/20/2011

Wednesday, 20 July, 2011 (Rome, Italy) -- Researchers presenting late breaking research on the final day of the 6th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2011) have today focussed on new studies in the field of circumcision, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and antiretroviral treatment. The IAS 2011 conference has been attended by over 5000 researchers, clinicians and community leaders since Sunday in Rome.

  • The roll-out of male circumcision in the South African township of Orange Farm (ANRS 12126) is curbing the spread of HIV ( 16.30-17.30, SR2)

Three years after the start of the male circumcision roll-out (ANRS 12126) in the South African township of Orange Farm (110 000 adults), a reduction in HIV prevalence and incidence among men has been observed. These findings demonstrate for the first time that male circumcision roll-out is effective at community level in curbing the spread of HIV. This research is coordinated by Inserm U1018/UVSQ and conducted by Progressus (South Africa), the National Institute of Communicable diseases of the NHLS (South Africa) and is financed by the French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis ANRS.

"The real-world effect of the roll-out of medical male circumcision (MMC) on the HIV epidemic has been until today, unknown," said Professor Bertran Auvert, Professor of Public Health at the University of Versailles and principal investigator of the study.
