ARV Therapy Following Male Circumcision Could Reduce HIV Transmission To Female Partners, Study Says
VOA News: Study: Give ARVs After Male Circumcision
“Male circumcision has been proven to slow the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa. But a new study shows that in the short-term, the surgical technique could actually increase the risk of infection for female partners unless precautions are taken. … The study recommended that men be placed on antiretroviral therapy at the time of circumcision. However, it’s not known yet how long the therapy should last or which drugs are most effective in such cases” (DeCapua, 4/28).
