The In-charge Kihihi health center Julius Brown Baluku told Chimpreports that the circumcision was aimed at reducing the rate of HIV/AIDS prevalence among the youth.

Baluku noted that male circumcision reduces HIV/AIDS infection by seventy five percent and called upon people to always embrace such opportunities.

“Circumcised men are 8 times less likely to contract the HIV virus and this also applies to preventing cancer of the cervix in women who have several partners,” explained Baluku.

According to the health officer, cervical cancer in women is due to the Human Papilloma Virus which thrives under and on the foreskin from where it can be transmitted during intercourse adding that at least twenty percent of the virus would be avoided if all men were circumcised.

Baluku added that even old men develop cancer of the penis when not circumcised adding that Infant circumcision gives almost one hundred percent protection and that young adult circumcision also gives a large degree of protection.

The health officer further advised that Circumcision apart from HIV/AIDS prevention reduces the risk of developing urinary tract infections like bladder infection.

The In-charge at Kihihi Health Centre therefore noted that the circumcision camp at the health center is normally conducted on quarterly basis and asked people to always respond voluntarily in case such services come their way.
