    HIV incidence in Zambia rose steadily and dramatically starting almost immediately when the mass circumcision campaigns commenced.

      The published study the article is probably drawing from is here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31608845/

        Something doesn't add up here. The survey says that the HIV rates among circumcised and uncircumcised men in 2018 was 6% and 8.3%, respectively, while the UNAIDS graph shows it closer to 10%. They need to explain the error margin there before saying that 6% to 8.3% is significant.

        The circumcision campaign started in 2007, but the HIV rate has basically not moved much since then.

        Also, what the hell was going on in the 90s? Whatever they did in 1996 reduced the HIV rate significantly.

          It's called shitty journalism.
