China Considering Evidence That Male Circumcision Could Reduce Risk of HIV Infection

China is considering evidence that routine male circumcision could reduce a man's risk of HIV infection but likely will not implement such a campaign nationwide, Ru Xiaomei, deputy director general of China's National Population // and Family Planning Commission, said on Friday, Reuters U.K. reports.

Data from two studies conducted in Kenya and Uganda released last month by NIH indicate that routine male circumcision could reduce a man's HIV infection risk through heterosexual sex by about 50%.

According to researchers, male circumcision eliminates the cells most vulnerable to HIV. In addition, a circumcised penis develops thicker skin that is resistant to HIV infection.

The results of the Uganda and Kenya studies were similar to the results of a study conducted in South Africa in 2005.
