    New research reveals that male circumcision could reduce HIV infection rates by up to 60 percent, which could prevent 5.7 million new cases and 3 million deaths over 20 years in sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Robert Bailey, professor of epidemiology at the University of Illinois, Chicago, School of Public Health, discusses his research findings with host Dr. Larry Kaskel, highlighting HIV infection rates in areas of Africa where the male population is circumcised, and explaining the mechanism by which HIV infection may occur in uncircumcised men.
