Two such studies have been perfonned. The first, by Bongaans et al. (25), compared the reported HIY seroprevalence in African capital cities with national male circumcision practices. They found a very strong correlation. Our group performed a similar study (26), in which the reported HIY-l seroprevalence in general population samples from 140 locations in Africa was related to ethnic male circumcision practices gleaned from the anthropologic literature. There was a striking association. As shown in the 39 map in Figure 1, male circumcision is not practiced in areas of highest HIV-I prevalence.
