KAMPALA, Uganda, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- World AIDS Day - The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, World Health Organization, UNAIDS, USAID, PEPFAR, and numerous NGOs have circumcised 12 million Africans to slow the spread of HIV/AIDS. The world has not heard a word from them until now. The VMMC Experience Project sent cameras into Uganda and Kenya to document the realities of the mass circumcision program. Local investigators conducted interviews with 90 affected men and women and found: 1. Africans are told circumcision conveys immunity from HIV.2. Condom use is at an all-time low, and AIDS is on the rise.3. The program is killing the very people it is supposed to help.4. No follow-up post circumcision (cut-and-release approach).5. Resentment and outrage among Africans. The "voluntary medical male circumcision" (VMMC) public health program is the first mass surgical campaign in human history. It targets Africans exclusively, leading some to question whether there are underlying racial motives. For centuries, western stereotypes have held that African men are lascivious or hypersexed, unable to control their sexual urges. Compulsory African-American male circumcision campaigns were proposed as early as the nineteenth century. Prince Hillary Maloba is a native Kenyan, director of the VMMC Experience Project, and the driving force behind the investigation. "Male circumcision," he explains, "as a project that has been applied for we [sic] Africans, has failed to reduce HIV the way we were told. Two, we view it as a violation of human rights. How target only one race in the entire world?" Bishop Cleophas Matete, another native Kenyan, agrees, "I believe the entire process of trying to test it in Africa was wrong from the beginning." The mass circumcision campaign was introduced to reduce the incidence of HIV in fourteen sub-Saharan African countries that did not initially practice genital cutting. However, UNAIDS data indicate that the African HIV epidemic has only worsened since 2010 — shortly after VMMC was implemented. For the first time since the war on AIDS began, HIV is back on the rise. The World Health Organization claims that male circumcision curbs female-to-male HIV transmission by up to 60 percent and provides lifelong partial protection against HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Their conclusions derive from a process of contentious surgical experimentation on Africans.
