Skip to comments.U.S. to Build Maternity Compounds Across Mozambique
Posted on 12/06/2012 3:02:18 AM PST by Steve Peacock
The Obama Administration is planning to build multiple health-services facilities across the African nation of Mozambique, where up to sixteen facilities will be constructed in rural locations. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) this morning unveiled the Health Infrastructure Development Program (HIDP) via the FedBizOpps database, where it issued an announcement seeking to pre-qualify construction firms.
The general goal of HIDP is to support the Mozambican Ministry of Health (MISAU) in the provision of improved health care services, according to the presolicitation notice. Each of the rural health centers will contain "a maternity unit, an attending or exam unit, a house for pregnant mothers and staff housing."
USAID already has selected contracting giant AECOM to:
manage the planning, design and construction of the facilities. Construction, remodeling, and rehabilitation under the HIDP will be carried out by Contractors under a number of separate contracts. AECOM is not a party to those contracts, but will serve as Technical Advisor to USAID, providing independent verification of the quality of the construction and rehabilitation work and the amount and value of work completed.
The estimated cost of the construction phase, not including the arrangement with AECOM, is $16 million.

USAID needs to be abolished! Immediately!!! If other countries were going to develop themselves, they would have by now!
Here come John and Teresa.
Maternity houses in Mozambique, abattoirs here under Planned Parenthood.
Maternity wards in the land formerly known as Rhodesia??
Here we are drowning in debt and our feckless “leaders” insist on spending our “Borrowed” money in other countries doing things to benefit them that they wouldn’t think of doing here to benefit our own citizens.
To say something stinks here...
That was my thought. We support Maternity in Mozambique while we murder our own children.
uh, no, that would be Zimbabwe
But apparently we in the USA have all the maternity clinics we need in the US so it’s time to start spending tax dollars building more in places that have absolutely zero strategic or any other impact on America
Baby plantations....future immigrants...
Meanwhile, Americans continue to piss and moan whenever unemployment benefits are extended.
Where is the straw that breaks the camel’s back?
There are enough of them to stuff a mattress for Michael Moore.
This is utter and absolute insanity from an agency of the central socialist government that needs to be abolished!
Where are our congressional voices? Where’s the young turks jumpting atop their congressional desks yelling for vengeance?
I dislike this damned government intensly. Throw babies in the dumpster here and save them in Mozambique.
