Female genital mutilation: potential for HIV transmission in sub-Saharan Africa and prospect for epidemiologic investigation and intervention.

The results indicate ongoing FGM practice, albeit prevalence reduction, due probably to the increasing knowledge of the consequences of FGM as a result of non-sterile techniques, and biologic plausibility in suggesting that FGM may be associated with increasing prevalence of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

There is evidence that new cases of AIDS are showing up at increasing rate in Africa especially in some urban areas of Central Africa, and the disease seems to be spreading largely through heterosexual contact.
