HIV and circumcision
I haven’t been working on this blog for that long (I just looked, and my first public post is from June 26!), but I’ve learned a lot, about all kinds of things. I’ve also run into some interesting surprises. One of these is the fact that circumcision is a much bigger issue to some people than I would have guessed.
I don’t have a whole lot of background knowledge on circumcision — as an HIV risk-reduction strategy or in any other context — so I’ve been caught somewhat unprepared by the number and intensity of comments attracted by the few posts dealing with circumcision on this site. Seeing that this issue is attracting a lot of interest on the blog, I want to make some basic resources available, focusing on a few very mainstream, widely-recognized sources for HIV/AIDS info.
I’ve divided this up into a few different pages just so it’s not one long document. I hope this info will be helpful. If you know of some other good info sources for this issue, let me know and I’ll check it out.
