Although these ecologic studies cannot prove that the intact foreskin renders men more susceptible to mV-l, they are certainly very consistent with that hypothesis. Such a relationship would do much to explain some of the puzzling geographic variations in HIV prevalence, such as the fact that Nigeria and Cameroon have apparently little HIV while neighbouring Ghana and Ivory Coast have much more severe problems. It might also explain our earlier observation of increased frequency of HIV-l in men originating in western Kenya.

Three areas particularly susceptible to the human rights ramifications of legislation are screening for AIDS, programs intended to effect behavior change, and discrimination against those who have AIDS or who are considered likely to have AIDS. Laws in these areas - some enlightened, some repressive - illustrate the delicacy of the balance of rights and responsibilities and the complexity of protecting society from errant individuals while protecting individuals from the undue constraints of society.
