Even circumcision cant protect homosexuals from HIV

Cover Story

Public health officials in the United States are considering promoting routine, universal circumcision for all baby boys born in the US to reduce the spread of HIV. A formal draft of the proposed recommendations is expected to be released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by the end of the year. Experts are also mulling whether the surgery should be offered to adult heterosexual men whose sexual practices put them at high risk of infection. But they acknowledge that a circumcision drive in the US would be unlikely to have a dramatic impact: The procedure does not seem to protect those at greatest risk in the US, men who have sex with men.
