Circumcision: A proven strategy to prevent HIV

and reduced their number of sexual partners."

The authors conclude that circumcision will be most effective if it is integrated with other prevention and reproductive health services.

"We have wonderful new drugs to at least maintain people for many years with the virus, but meanwhile more people are getting infected at a rate of approximately 5,000 persons per day," said Bailey. "We cannot treat our way out of this epidemic. Prevention of new infections is crucial."

Simulation models estimate that millions of new HIV infections, tens of thousands of deaths, and several million dollars could be saved if male circumcision became routine in sub-Saharan Africa.

"This is really the first good news we've had in quite a long time. If we can reduce the risk of infection by such a substantial amount then we can save a lot of lives."

In December the National Institutes of Health halted Bailey's trial of male circumcision after the study's independent data safety monitoring board reviewed the preliminary results and recommended that all men enrolled in the study who remain uncircumcised be offered circumcision due to the clearly protective effect.
