Medical Male Circumcision Powerful Tool In Overcoming Spread Of HIV

Mail & Guardian: Comment: Safer, due to unforeskinned circumstances
Festus Gontebanye Mogae, former president of Botswana and member of Champions for an AIDS-Free Generation

“… Any man who wants to receive medical circumcision to prevent HIV should be able to access it from a trained health provider. … As more men take responsibility for their health and well-being, our leaders must not let them down. We have made tremendous progress toward ending AIDS, considering where we started. But we aren’t out of the woods yet — AIDS is still upon us. Medical male circumcision is a powerful, safe, and affordable way to protect current and future generations from HIV. The responsible choice is clear to those who are willing to step up” (8/8).
