February 3, 2010

The Daily Nation/allAfrica.com reports 90,000 men have been circumcised since the government launched the national voluntary male circumcision drive in November 2008. "Kenya is one of 14 sub-Saharan countries that have expanded Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision programmes since ground-breaking randomised controlled trials conducted in Kisumu[, Kenya], South Africa, and Uganda revealed that the procedure reduced men's chances of HIV infection by 60 percent," the news service reports (2/2).
