KENYA:The prevalence of HIV and Aids rose in Nyanza and Central provinces, according to the Kenya Aids Indicative Survey released by the Health Cabinet Secretary James Macharia on Tuesday.

But Central’s 3.8 per cent prevalence increase from the previous 3.6 per cent is a mere fraction of Nyanza’s 15.1 per cent up from 2007’s 14.9 per cent.

Nyanza’s prevalence is big enough to double the national average prevalence.

And it has happened in spite of an aggressive campaign to have male circumcision as a strategy to reduce new infections in the region.

According to the KAIS 2012 survey, male circumcision among men aged 15-64 years in Nyanza increased by 18 per cent.

There are 6 violent deaths per 100,000 residents, according to a new report. That far exceeds any other wealthy nation. Gun violence contributes to Americans' lower life expectancy, the report explained. The U.S. also has more drug-related deaths, infant mortality and AIDS. The nation's health care system, harmful behaviors and social and economic conditions could be factors.

The church is a petrified oligarchy, a dictatorship like the medieval monarchies it once existed alongside, and it's run by a small circle of conservative, rigidly ideological old men who make all the decisions and choose their own successors.

This means that, whatever individual Catholics may do, the resources of the church as an institution are bent toward opposing social progress and positive change all over the world.

Researchers in Orange Farm, South Africa, devised a community-wide program in 2008 that provided free circumcision for men, plus condoms and counseling.

So they give men circumcision + condoms + counseling, but the only factor that reduced HIV spread was circumcision. Weird.

The strategy of mass circumcision is an unethical and dangerous distraction in the battle against HIV and AIDS. Intact America calls upon the governing bodies of the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNAIDS to tell the truth: circumcision does not prevent AIDS. Will you help UNAIDS and the WHO get the message by signing our petition now?
