The claim that circumcision is protective against HIV is starting to unravel. In Zimbabwe, 14% of circumcised men have HIV, and 12% of intact men, the same ratio as in 2005, before the circumcision campaign began there, and similar to 10 out of 18 countries for which USAID has figures. A study in Uganda started to show that circumcising men increases the risk to women, who are already at greater risk, but it was cut short for no good reason before that could be confirmed.
