A study presented today at the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014) in Melbourne found positive associations between voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) and a reduced incidence of syphilis, not just in men, but in their female partners.

Another study found no evidence of risk compensation among men post-circumcision, while a third used a novel food-voucher scheme as an incentive for getting older men to come forward for circumcision.
