To: H-NET List for African History and Culture <H-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU> We are looking for contributors in an attempt to explore male circumcision in all its pros and cons, especially in Africa. A new study reveals that circumcision affects the type of bacteria that live on the male sexual organ which could explain why circumcised men have a 50 percent to 60 percent reduced risk of being infected by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Circumcision also lowers the risk of infection with other sexually transmitted viruses such as human papillomavirus and herpes simplex virus type 2, researchers have found. The findings were published April 16 in the online journal mBio. Zimbabwe is one of the country?s worst hit by Aids and in 2010 the government launched a campaign to circumcise up to 80 percent of the country s young men - some three million people. What is the result of this campaign? The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) found that the medical benefits of circumcision outweigh the risks.

Thank you Leni Darwin, Ph.d -------Original Message------- From: teferi abate Date: 4/26/2013 6:01:47 PM To: H-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU Subject: CFP: The Pan African International 2014 Symposium Subject: CFP: The Pan African International 2014 Symposium Date: Fri, 26 Apr 2013 00:01:29 -0700 (PDT) From: Itibari M.
