Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program
CNS News ^ | September 13, 2010

Posted on 09/13/2010 7:43:00 AM PDT by La Lydia

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex. The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011...

Because AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision, the UCLA study proposes to determine whether researchers can develop an after-sex genitalia-washing regimen that they can then convince uncircumcised African men to follow...

The study’s lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents. CNSNews.com asked both Coates and NIMH the following question: “The Census Bureau says the median household income in the United States is $52,000. How would you explain to the average American mom and dad -- who make $52,000 per year -- that taxing them to pay for this grant was justified?”

Coates, who was unavailable for comment, directed CNSNews.com to ask grant-related questions of his assistant, Darya Freedman, who did not respond. The NIMH also declined to respond to CNSNews.com’s question.

Paying for this from Stimulus Funds probably is truth in advertising. I bet the field researcher found it highly stimulating.

When I was in grammar school in the '50s, we were taught that Africa was a "sleeping" giant. It would soon awaken and have a profound affect on the world.
Well, here we are fifty years later and the ignorant SOBs still don't even know how to wash their b*lls.

Barry’s megalomania is raging so far out of control that he keeps digging deeper to find the most ridiculous ways to spend money. Wouldn’t be surprised if he commanded his ACORN shell groups to give happy ending genital washings to voters in exchange for voting Dem in November.

The greatest killer in Africa is still diarrhea and other diseases realted to unclean drinking water. Wonder how many water purification stations could have built with that kind of money?

Americans are being used as tax slaves for the world. After we're done supporting the world, we're allowed to keep a few dollars for our own needs. Just try to put your own family first, and see what happens to you.

Look around. The U.S. is no longer a free country. It's people are in bondage by it's own government, and there is no escape.

I think you’d be unsuccessful convincing most adult men anywhere to undergo circumcision.

Let's see, the research team worked with about 250 African men, so that would work out to about $3,292 of taxpayer money per penis.

They would not even consider asking them to refrain from sex. No. Because they consider the Africans incapable of restraining themselves from their lower animal instincts and acting in a civilized manner. That would stop the spread of disease.

And even in that case, I would rather spend the money on a program that teaches them how to build their own purification systems.

I’d like to help you, but I can’t help you until you learn to help yourself...

In all fairness, you probably have to pay people quite a bit to teach Africans how to wash their dongles. :)

When I think of the MILLIONS and MILLIONS we Americans send in benevolent money to all these country's from our taxes, it is just staggering that these people are still hurting so bad.

Guess it is a vision of what is to come in America under this regime, fly's love Obama also.

The free market solution would be to ask industry to find a solution. Ask Brillo and S.O.S. to design a hollow soap pad, possibly shaped like a condom. This surely would be an effective option and very low cost.

Advancing Global Health through Ambitious and Sustainable Programs

Global Health programs have been central to US foreign assistance in recent years, and stand out as examples how initiatives that include bold targets and results-driven funding can save lives and transform development paradigms.

In the coming year a series of new initiatives could dramatically strengthen US global health programs. The Obama administration’s announcement in May 2009 of a Global Health Initiative, efforts by the US Congress to reform foreign assistance and potentially re-write the foreign assistance act, and international efforts to expand global health initiatives and better coordinate global health aid all portend change.

In the US, a coalition of global health advocacy organizations has come together to consider how US development assistance for health should be structured in the future. Organizations focused on HIV/AIDS and infectious diseases, child health, maternal health, sexual and reproductive health and rights, health workforce, neglected diseases, and comprehensive primary healthcare have all joined in this process. Breaking down silos that too often prevent coordinated advocacy efforts, we hope to present a progressive vision of what the next phase of US global health support could look like, including:

*
Ambitious scale up of US assistance for health that saves even more lives through new, innovative programming.
*
New resources—with the US contributing its fair share to efforts—rather than taking from one area of promised support and giving to another.
*
The US to lead the world to reach the health MDGs and do so in ways which build access to comprehensive primary healthcare and provide a rights-based approach to health for all people.
*
Reform of US foreign assistance to ensure it is outcomes-driven, based on results for those most in need, and ambitiously aimed toward universal access.

http://www.theglobalhealthinitiative.org/

Again - no surprise. We knew what Obama wanted to do.
