ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the position of pediatric societies in the U.S. and Canada towards the benefits of routine infant circumcision. With the sub-Saharan study showing that adult male circumcision reduced the risks of several sexually transmitted infections, these groups, like Australian pediatric societies, are unlikely to change their position that infant circumcision benefits the neonate. It suggests that these societies should provide evidence-based guidance on peripubertal circumcision.
