Reassessing HIV prevention

By Maria May | 24 May, 2010

A review of the evidence supporting each of the major interventions for sexual transmission of HIV (including STI treatment, condom promotion, HIV testing). Authors argue that the strategic allocations as recommended by the UNAIDS and other global groups are overly focused on high-risk groups and related interventions (such as condom use) for a generalized epidemic setting, where the data suggests that male circumcision and reduction of concurrent partnerships would have a larger impact.

One of the most comprehensive reviews that I've been able to find.
