Snipped: Male Circumcision and the Prevention of AIDS in Africa – a film by Jeremy Gans


Snipped is a short-length documentary by Jeremy Gans that explores the use of male circumcision as an HIV intervention in eastern and southern Africa. The film takes viewers to Kisumu, Kenya – the site of one of the randomised controlled trials – to retrace the path that led researchers to the discovery that male circumcision reduces men's risk of acquiring HIV infection through vaginal sex. It also journeys to a health clinic in Mbabane, Swaziland, to get an inside glimpse into how circumcision is being rolled out on the frontlines of the epidemic.
