Circumcision

Other things being equal the rate of prevalence of HIV infection has been observed to be less among the circumcised populations than among whom circumcision is not a practice either for religious reasons or medical reasons. Transmission of the HIV infection is apparently cut down greatly in the case of circumcised people.

If this is a verifiable truth ,it makes a lot of sense to examine using a medically done circumcision (not a quack job) among high HIV prevalence areas as a preventive measure for combating AIDS.
