I have discussed my opinion on this topic repeatedly in the past. In essence their is no convincing medical proof of any health benefit, apart from possible improved hygiene and decreased risk of HIV transmission, but none of these are relevant if a reaonable level of hygiene is maintained and other measures are taken to prevent HIV transmission. I am not aware of any official view on the matter from the SA Paeds Society.
