How Do We Prevent Unnecessary Male Circumcision?
One-Day Workshop and Mini-Conference at Keele University, Staffordshire on Thursday 26th July 2012
An estimated 100 men and boys are circumcised in the UK every day – around 90% of these operations are thought to be medically unnecessary. The charity Genital Autonomy is hosting a unique one-day workshop and mini-conference to explore what campaigners, researchers, the media, charity workers, public sector staff, health professionals and religious communities can do to start reducing the number of men and boys who are subjected to unnecessary circumcision every day in the UK.
The day will be facilitated by Glen Poole of The Men's Network.
This event will be of interest to anyone who wants to:
- Find out more about the pros and cons of therapeutic circumcision
- Learn about the non-surgical alternatives to circumcision
- Help reduce the number of unnecessary circumcisions performed by the NHS
- Explore whether it is feasible or desirable to regulate religious circumcisions
- Consider the medical ethics of performing unnecessary circumcisions
- Debate whether boys should have the same legal protection against unnecessary genital surgery as girls
- Discuss what role we can play in reducing unnecessary male circumcision in other countries
