Circumcise older boys not newborns: expert - "Just how relevant the African studies — which all involved adult male circumcision — are for Canada and other countries that have far lower HIV rates isn’t clear. A recent U.S. analysis estimated that neonatal circumcision would reduce the 1.87-per-cent lifetime risk of HIV among men by only about 16 per cent. 'It’s not a huge decrease,' says MacDonald. In addition, giving boys the HPV vaccine might be cheaper and far more effective at preventing HPV than circumcision, she said."
