Circumcised men still run risk of HIV infection

Thursday, 26 September, 2013 - 07:45

There is an upsurge of cases of people who got infected with HIV following circumcision.

Deborah Retief Memorial Hospital Superintendent, Dr Motlalepula Powe, told a full council meeting in Mochudi that they had noticed a sharp increase in patients who test positive after circumcision although they had been negative before the operation.

Dr Powe appealed to circumcised men to continue condomising to reduce new infections.

She stressed that circumcised men should still continue to use condoms even if their chances of infection have been reduced by circumcision.
