Have you ever assumed that circumcision has an important role in a reduced risk of HIV? I think many of you answer ‘No, I haven’t assumed before’, because in the past circumcision was only the part of certain religion rule, isn’t it? Recently, as the result of the XVI International AIDS Conference in Toronto 13-18 August 2006, circumcision has become one of some recommendations to enforce for preventing the spreading of HIV-AIDS.
The XVI International AIDS Conference which organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS) and the AIDS 2006 Toronto Local Host is the biennial gathering of the global AIDS community. The conference features the presentation of more than 4,500 abstracts and an array of community and cultural activities. Over 26,000 participants from more than 170 countries are in attendance included Indonesia.
The recommendation is based on a research which organized by W.B.Sateren et all, among tea plantation residents in Kericho, Kenya. HIV testing method was done by ELISA and confirmed by Western blot assay. A strong statistically significant difference in HIV prevalence was observed between the 398 uncircumcised men and the 1,321 circumcised men. The results show that circumcision was found to be a protective predictor of HIV infection. This protective effect was also observed for circumcised men compared to uncircumcised men across all strata of age groups, education, marital status, history of sexually transmitted infection, and syphilis infection status. Risk to acquire HIV-AIDS is 66% higher to uncircumcised men than circumcised men. So, let us campaign circumcision to stop spreading HIV-AIDS. (Primz)
